Create Great Video Lessons on iSL Collective

iSL Collective offers a huge gallery of video-based lessons designed to help students learn English. It also offers a fantastic tool for teachers to use to create their own video-based lessons.

iSL Collective's video lesson creator lets you build questions into videos found on YouTube and on Vimeo. The lesson creator allows you to add multiple choice, short answer, fill-in-the-blank, matching, and sorting questions to a video. If you find a video that is a little longer than you need, iSL Collective's lesson creator will let you trim the video.

iSL Collective doesn't just let you build questions into your video-based lesson. It provides a full lesson planning tool that can include vocabulary lists for students, discussion questions, and an outline of objectives for your lesson.

Applications for Education
iSL Collective was designed to help students learn English, but the video lesson creator could be used to make lessons for any subject area. As you can see in my screenshot above, I made a short lesson about the Battle of Gettysburg.

iSLCollective Video Quiz Creator

iSLCollective is an interactive video quiz creator that allows students to interact with videos while they watch them.

Once you create an account you can upload a video from either YouTube or Vimeo. Once your video has uploaded you can begin adding any number of question types such as including fill in the gap, matching, multiple choice, and open ended.  You can add as many questions as you wish. Once you are finished and you have published your video lesson you can select several different play modes to share with students. If you would rather use a video lesson that has already been created then you might be able to find what you are looking for in the video library.

Applications for Education
There are numerous ways to use this tool in the classroom. Teachers could create video lessons for students to watch at their own pace. Teachers could take it another step and make their own instructional videos, upload them to YouTube or Vimeo, then create a video lesson with them. Since the teacher is controlling the content, this service can be used with students in all grade levels and subjects.
