Resource Introduction: Zaption


What is it?

Zaption enables teachers to add interactive elements to videos. These elements include text and image slides, drawings, and three types of questions: open response, multiple choice, and checkbox. Teachers can share those videos with students and track their progress through answering the questions. All of this is free and requires only a Google login. A premium upgrade will provide more features, but unlike some free-to-premium services, the free version is very likely all you’ll need. Zaption also offers a gallery of finished lessons.

How can I use it?

Add a video from YouTube or elsewhere and add any of the interactive elements above. Comprehension questions? Sure! Images to enhance content? Sure! Use these elements to convert lessons into interactive experiences and make a flipped classroom more than simply students watching TV.

Who’s using it?

Check out these teachers that know and use Zaption in your school. Ask them for help!

At Southview, Lisa Sobb and Shelley Bielak
