The iSLCollective video quiz maker and video lesson library

What is the ISLCollective Video Quiz Maker?

The iSLCollective video quiz maker, a project of Peter Laszlo, co-founder of iSLCollective.com, is a free web-based tool that allows teachers to create interactive video quizzes around YouTube and Vimeo videos.
It takes 5 minutes to learn to use.
  1. First, teachers choose videos from YouTube or Vimeo.
  2. Next they write questions that will pop up throughout the video. They can also add a lesson plan, vocabulary list, and discussion questions.
  3. There is an option for teachers to search for ready-made video quizzes in our library, which currently contains 1800 free video lessons.
  4. The questions in the quizzes created by others can be tailored to meet the needs of their students.
First, these quizzes allow teachers to put their focus on their students during class, rather than handling the video. This tool gives them a break from keeping track of video pauses, printing the questions beforehand, etc. In addition, the interactivity and gamification adds playfulness to video work – with various play modes (e.g. the classic Casino game where you bet on the right answer) and features like the tapping game where students tap on objects seen in the paused video screen. It’s a great homework tool as well!

Comments

  1. My 8-year-old daughter loved the tappable pictionary game.

    1. Hi Magdalena, can you explain to us how she used it?

      1. Mr Bean cartoon caught my daughter’s eye, and she was happy to tap on each item she knew (e.g. an empty pizza box) whenever she was asked to do so. She was also delighted when the game “congratulated” her on her proficiency. 🙂 Then, she said she still wanted to play, so we went to Peter’s website and found more tappable games.

      2. When I get a chance, I’ll look into why you haven’t been notified that I replied to your comment. It may be because we didn’t tag each other in like this> @youthculturalcenterno1poznan
