If you’re looking for a free, easy-to-use web-based tool that will add quizzes, notes or images to YouTube or Vimeo videos, then Zaption is for you. Both teachers and students will like its easy interface and sharing tools.

Zaption: interactive videoTo use Zaption, all you do is upload a video then drag and drop quizzes, images, notes and more to any point in the video. Actually, you don’t even have to upload anything if you’d rather not because Zaption also has a gallery of video tours you can use. So simple you can have a finished product ready to go within 10-15 minutes.

To get started, go to and register for a free account (or a paid account with more features). Next click on “New Tour” (videos are called tours), upload a video and get going. If you want, you can trim the video to the length you want or you can just insert a quiz or two. Get help from the Zaption Help Center, including this 4-minute how to get started video:
