eduCanon – Turn streaming videos into assessment opportunities!

educanon

Who: Teachers looking to create blended or flipped lessons.  Another great use is to connect with students on snow days.

How: Teachers create an account and set up classes through eduCanon‘s website.  After making an account, teachers create lessons (“bulbs”) by adding in video URL’s.  After linking the video, the teacher then chooses where to add questions.  There are a few different levels of membership to eduCanon viewed here: http://www.educanon.com/premium.

When: Teachers can use this tool at any point in a lesson.  Other useful options are blended or flipped lessons, snow day work, etc. Another great use is as a bell-ringer while the teacher takes attendance.

I recommend viewing the tutorial on the front page. In only a few minutes, I was able to create my first bulb and create a class.  The ability to embed bulbs is fantastic for teachers who are using a LMS.
