Social Video Learning with the Interactive Video Suite
Interactive - Competence-oriented - Inspiring
The core of Social Video Learning are time-marker-specific comments in videos. Video comments and further functions such as in-video-questions or highlighting tools increase student interaction and promote attention and transfer thinking. This does not only boost the students’ motivation, but also supports the successful acquisition of knowledge and skills in the long term.
Integration of external video sources
Besides uploading and using your own videos, you can also integrate YouTube, Vimeo as well as external video files (via URL) as video sources. Other supported video sources are Panopto, OpenCast and Kaltura. You can apply all the features available to you for your own video footage to external videos as well.
Time-marker specific video comments
Comments and re-comments make it possible to ask questions, lead discussions and contribute ideas directly in the video. This is additionally possible as an audio message. Colored icons in the playbar highlight the timing of the comments.
Add markers, text notes, zoom, pauses, slow motion, and fast motion to your video. Use these to draw learners’ attention to important aspects and encourage discussion in the video.
Use single-choice tests and open questions to test learners’ prior knowledge and understanding directly in the video. When the question appears, the video stops; learners cannot continue until the question is answered (correctly).
Complement single-choice and open questions with interactive hotspots in your videos. To answer a question correctly, learners must click a special area on the screen before the video continues.
Reference different video sequences from the video that play depending on the answer to a question. This not only tells learners if an answer is right or wrong, but also gives them a hint for the correct answer.
