7 Tools for Adding Questions and Notes to Videos

7 Tools for Adding Questions and Notes to Videos
Short videos from YouTube and other sources can be quite helpful in introducing topics to students and or reinforcing concepts that you have taught. Watching the video can be enough for some students, it's better if we can call students' attention to specific sections of videos while they are watching them. The following tools allow you to add comments and questions to videos that you share with your students. Vibby is a service for breaking YouTube videos into segments and inserting comments into those segments. To segment a YouTube video on Vibby simply grab the URL for the video and paste into the Vibby editor. Once inserted into Vibby you can highlight a segment on the video timeline. YouTube has a built-in tool for adding annotations to videos that you own. On VideoANT anyone can add annotations to any publicly accessible YouTube video. VideoNotes is a neat tool for taking notes while watching videos.
