(Liveblogging from the AAPT). I just learned about a really helpful tool for creating short videos, which seems useful for flipped classrooms in multiple disciplines: The Interactive Video Vignettes. These vignettes are more than just a video, it includes a simple “wrapper” where students can make predictions about what will happen in the video (including branching questions), or do video analysis. The project is online at http://www.compadre.org/ivv .
The videos run in a browser, so can accompany video lectures. Even better, anyone can make these! There is a free Java application (Vignettes Studio) for doing so. Visit http://ivv.rit.edu/workshop to see detailed requirements for the web server and video equipment you will need, and the software can be downloaded at http://www.compadre.org/ivv .
