Interactive video

  • A tool that allows students to interact with content while watching a video (YouTube or University hosted).

    • The student can stop and see the video several times until he understands the material.
    • The instructor can present content before the lesson, thus allowing lesson time (face-to-face) to answer clarification questions about the content and the implementation of the information.
    • Instructors can track student interactive with the video.
