Last night during our Google Hangout about volunteer opportunities for the 2015 K-12 Online Conference, Karen Fasimpaur (@kfasimpaur) mentioned the possibility of using Vialogues or other websites to embed discussions about K-12 Online Conference presentation videos into the actual videos. Several other options were brought up by participants in our live TitanPad-powered chat. I hadn’t heard of Vialogues previously, but have heard of similar websites. Here are the websites and web tools I’ve encountered to date which offer this kind of functionality, to create questions for students, conference participants, or others which are linked to direct time stamps in a video:

  1. Vialogues (@Vialogues)
  2. Zaption (@zaption)
  3. TEDed
  4. EdPuzzle (@EDpuzzle)

Have you had experiences (positive or negative) using any of these tools with your own students, or in other online conferences / events? Are there other good websites/tools which should be included in this list?

If you missed last night’s #K12Online15 Google Hangout, please check out the archived video on YouTube as well as the TitanPad document embedded below it. We’d love to have you help out as a volunteer for the 2015 conference. I think it would be great if some volunteers can figure out how to use one of these websites to deepen and improve conversations around the video presentations in the conference!
