Zaption - Video Based Quizzes and More Zaption is an interesting video assessment tool that I tried when it was in beta last fall. This afternoon I received an email from the Zaption team asking me to take a look at the new version of the service. I was impressed by what I saw when I tried it this evening. Zaption is a tool for creating video-based quizzes. Unlike some services like TED-Ed that have students watch a video then answer questions at the end, Zaption allows you to display questions for students to answer as they watch a video. To create a quiz on Zaption you start by creating a "tour" in your account. MyRRU: how to create video There are several options for creating video for your course. The best place to start is by chatting with your Instructional Designer (ID), who can help you sort though the options and determine what's best for your particular course. Normally, you and the ID will determine that either a) you can "do it yourself" and upload a voice-over PowerPoint/video to Youtube, RRU's media server, or your own option, or b) Media Support Services are needed to shoot either in studio or a classrom.
