How to Make an Interactive Lesson Using Youtube We’ve been getting a lot of questions ever since our GMAT Choose Your Own Adventure video went up. Well, one question, really: How can I make one for my students? Answer: It’s easy! Youtube has a great tool called Spotlight that lets you make any video interactive. It’s really handy for lessons and quizzes. Essentially, you can ask students a question — or a series of questions — and when they answer show them a personalized video response according to how they did. Quizzes aren’t always the most exciting things in the world, so this adds a bit of adventure to the experience. Here’s how to do it. 1. In your Youtube account (they’re easy to set up if you don’t have one), take some time to check out the Spotlight tool. 2. Spotlights let you create a clickable area in any part of your video that links to another video on Youtube. For our first video, the Edit Annotation screen looked like this: 3.

Hiroshima after the Atomic Bomb (3 of 5) by Harbert F Austin Jr The eight islands of Japan sprang into existence through Divine Intervention. The first two gods who came into existence were Izanagi no Mikoto and Izanami no Mikoto, the Exalted Male and Exalted Female. It was their job to make the land for people to live on. They went to the bridge between heaven and earth and, using a jewel-encrusted halberd, Izanagi and Izanami churned up the sea into a frothy foam. As salty drips of water fell from the tip of the halberd the first island was formed. Its name was Onogoro. So far, so good. The next time they met, Izanagi was sure to speak first, ensuring the proper rules were followed, and this time they produced eight children, which became the islands of Japan. I'm sure you did not fail to miss the significance of this myth for the establishment of Japanese formal society. At present, Japan is the financial capital of Asia. Technically there are three thousand islands making up the Japanese archipelago. Text by Steve Smith.
