Zaption turns online video into engaging, interactive learning experiences. Teachers use Zaption’s intuitive web app to quickly add images, quizzes, and discussions to existing videos from YouTube, Vimeo, and private video libraries. The result is an interactive learning tour that turns passive video into an active learning experience. With Zaption’s rich analytics, instructors get real-time feedback and actionable data to track student progress toward learning goals. If you don’t want to start from scratch, Zaption has a growing library of high-quality curriculum that you can instantly copy and customize for your students. The Basic version of Zaption is completely free, and teachers and schools can upgrade to the Pro version to unlock additional features such as adding unlimited videos, creating groups, and integrating with learning management systems.
