For teachers - Educanon to create interactive videos

I love using videos in my classes and with the following tool I can even create my own interactive videos

With Educanon you can choose a video from the web (YouTube, Vimeo, or TeacherTube videos) and embed anything you like. You can  transform what is traditionally passive content into an active experience for students.

You can:
(1) Build. You can add questions, lesson information, paste a video or a url directly INTO any video.
(2) Assign. You can create your class(es) and assign lessons.
(3) Monitor. You can watch student progress in real-time, question-by-question.

The following simple example I made for you is in preview mode (I didn't create my own class). In the actual student lesson, students cannot fast-forward or skip parts. Moreover, when they are asked to answer some questions, they can write in a blank space that you cannot see in the preview mode.

Watch my example:

I think Educanon it's perfect to create your own video lessons in flipped and blended learning environments.Try it!


  1. I am glad that you found this great tool. I have been recommending it for several months now. If you want help making videos with and for your students, then please let me know? I would like to help you and your students make educational videos that you can turn into lessons using eduCanon.

    Hello, Roberta! I agree, it's a wonderful tool to use for a flipped classroom.
    Just today I've created my first lesson with it
