MoocNote is a free service that I’ve written about a few times in the past as a tool for collaborative note-taking while watching a video. It is a good service for doing that. Recently, MoocNote expanded to offer tools for adding quiz questions to videos. You can now use MoocNote to add multiple choice, true/false, multiple selection, and fill-in-the-blank questions to the timeline of any video that you find on YouTube (premium users can import their own videos as well).
Adding questions into the timeline of a video in MoocNote
is fairly straight-forward once you know where to find the question icon (see this video
for an explanation). You can add as many questions as you like to the timeline of a video. One nice feature is that you can have your questions be active or inactive and toggle between the two settings. That could be nice if you want to show the video without interruptions to one class but then use it with a different class in which students will be required to answer questions online.
The other recent update to MoocNote that some teachers will appreciate is that it is now possible to share MoocNote lessons with students who don’t have email addresses. You can now give students a link to the lesson and a pin that they have to enter to access the lesson. See this video
for an explanation.
The obvious comparison for MoocNote is EDpuzzle. MoocNote doesn’t have as many reporting functions as EDpuzzle. On the other hand, the initial set-up for using MoocNote is a little simpler and getting students into it is easy.
