Creating Q & A for a Youtube video

GROCKIT is an interesting tool  which allows teachers to create questions and answers for any youtube video. Each question can be added to the right spot of the video and the activity can then be shared with your students via a link or sent to twitter or facebook. Unfortunately , I believe it's not possible to embed the activity. I've learned about it via David Kapuler.

How to create your activity:

  1. Create your free account.
  2. Select the video from youtube and copy the URL.
  3. Go to  https://grockit.com/answers/ and paste the video URL.
  4. To the left of the video thumbnail image, click MODERATE A PRIVATE Q & A.
  5. Click on the play button below the video and pause when you want to insert a question. Repeat the procedure, play video, pause, type question and click SUBMIT.
  6. Click SHARE to grab the URL to share it with students.
