17 Web Tools and Apps to Create Interactive Video Lessons and Quizzes

“Videos provide greater engagement than text or images for the simple reason that it combines audio, video and text.” – Amit Garg

YouTube is one of the most popular social networks, because students love learning by video. DIY (Do It Yourself) videos, How-To videos, Tutorials, game walkthroughs and TED Talks are some of the most viewed videos. People enjoy learning from others who walk them through the process.  The content is shorter and dynamic. Plus, students can learn from a multitude of subject matter experts worldwide. Below are web tools and apps for teaching with videos. If you’d like to get your students to create their own video walkthroughs or tutorials then check out my book, Hacking Digital Learning Strategies: 10 Ways to Launch EdTech Missions. For more ideas on flipping instruction with video, check out my presentation, Flipping Instruction for Struggling Students.
