Exemplar thumbnail


Videos can be excellent teaching tools. The key to success is to keep them short and require engagement so that students are not passively watching. In this activity, short videos (≈ 7 minutes) were recorded and existing media was embedded (Smart History. Art, History, Conversation.) Quizzes and notes were then added using Panopto and Edpuzzle to make them interactive.
