Zaption - Personalize a video by embedding questions

Videos are in every teachers tool kit.  Now you can personalize your videos (or YouTube videos) by adding comprehension questions, images and text reminders with Zaption.  Zaption is very easy to use and free!  You can add multiple choice, multiple select or open response questions.  You can even add questions in which your student draws a response. (Ex:  Circle Pluto in this image of the solar system.)  Teachers have direct instant access to students responses.  Zaption enables you to clip the video to shorten it to your specific needs.  Videos can be used for flipped classroom opportunities, homework assignments or even a workshop station!  Or share a video whole class and work on note-taking skills or synthesizing skills.

Here is a sample video.
