Flipping the classroom, blended learning, and other approaches that incorporate interactive learning at home often call on video as a medium of content delivery. Getting learners to fully engage with the material is difficult, but I ran across an interesting tool that might be a bit of help in boosting learner engagement. It's called Zaption. This tool essentially allows an instructor of any subject to pull videos from the web and insert quiz questions throughout the video. The ability to quiz learners throughout a video keeps them engaged and gives you insight into what level of learning is taking place in unison with the viewing of videos.
Here's a short introduction to the tool. I'll be sure to give this a shot in future months.
