New “3 Minute Teaching With Tech” Tutorial Video Provides a Quick Intro to This Powerful Free Tool
NOTE: As of mid 2016, EduCanon has been absorbed by PlayPosit. In the meanwhile, I have been using EdPuzzle, having found it to have better functionality than EduCanone (the most important element being better feedback about how much of the video students watched and how they did with the questions). PlayPosit also absorbed the other big player in this small field … Zaption. I will be creating a 3 Minute TOOL-torial for EdPuzzle shortly. – KW 8/26/16
Have you ever wished you knew how to easily add questions into a video to create lesson content or to help ensure that students are engaging with video content? Well, you can, for free!
One of the many great tools I learned about at FlipCon14 in June was EduCanon. I'd been interested in finding a tool that would enable users to easily add questions or quizzes into a video, but just had not been able to make the time to find a good one. EduCanon and EdPuzzle are two apps with this type of functionality that heard about at the excellent flipped teaching and learning conference.
Today I took EduCanon for a spin, and recorded a new 3 Minute Teaching With Technology Tutorial to show how easy it is to add questions to a video and create a quiz using this wonderful free tool. EduCanon also provides additional functionality that lets you crop videos, and group sets of edited videos into Lessons. After you invite students to watch and answer the questions, you can monitor their progress.

So, have you used EduCanon or similar tools? How are using them in your classes? We'd love to hear about your experiences.
