Mozilla Popcorn Maker is a free tool for triggering rich web content to pop up as a web video plays. You can import a YouTube video, then add your own annotations, links, quizzes, maps, questions, and further reading, triggered to appear at key points in the video timeline. These enhanced video presentations can be embedded into your LMS or blog as a standalone eLearning unit that works on any device.
This is just one example of what a Mozilla Popcorn Maker presentation can look like. Notice the timed “pop-ups” with links to further reading, wikipedia articles, videos, and more.
This is a great project that can solve a lot of problems for teachers who want to combine video with links, annotations, maps, and more — all in glorious free web friendly HTML5.
Take a moment to get familiar with this tool and I bet you’ll start to see ways it can add value to your teaching practice.
