WorldVuze just got more engaging! This month we are introducing new features that will allow classrooms to feel more deeply connected to one another by offering new mediums and opportunities to engage with the world.
Ask a video question as a class or use a video to inspire discussion.
Start by asking a question as you normally would by typing out your question and multiple choice options in the question field.
Turn it into a video question, using YouTube or Vimeo, by finding the video you want and using the proper embed format.
For YouTube the proper embed format is:
Your video’s ID is the letter/number combination after the v= in your videos url. See the VIDEO_ID for the WorldVuze Student Case Study video, for example, highlighted in yellow below. That means, the proper embed format for the WorldVuze Student Case Study video would be https://youtube.com/embed/gdUlTt0tdTI
How might pictures or images be interpreted from different perspectives? You can explore this new medium for discussion by posting your own picture questions!
Simply find your image and add it to your next question on WorldVuze.
Learn more about the class behind the question by adding your own class profile.
Add a class picture and class description that students and teachers around the world can see by editing your class, under your profile tab.
See class profiles of others by clicking on the class name or class profile icon next to their question, such as the Grade 6 Class below.
