Zaption Helps Students Interact with Your Content

zaption demoZaption is a web app teachers can use to build interactive experiences for students around video.  Teachers can add images, text, quizzes and discussions interspersed throughout private videos as well as those from YouTube and Vimeo to create a “learning tour.”  One great thing to remember is that Zaption is compatible with Canvas.

Zaption allows teachers to place questions, comments, and discussion items at strategic points within a video to ensure students get a quality interactive experience with blended or flipped content through what is referred to as a “learning tour.”

I recently took an online PBLU course through the Buck Institute.  I experienced the course through Zaption.  After I submitted responses to the questions throughout, I received specific feedback via E-mail after I completed the course.  As an adult learner, I loved the format, and I imagine our students will as well.
