    Katie- Great blog post! I wanted to make a plug for Zaption- an interactive video platform that lets teachers insert quizzes, slides and other elements. Zaption is really easy to use, with an intuitive interface, actionable data, ability to integrate with an LMS and a gallery with interactive content teachers can easily copy and personalize. Come check it out!

    Thank you for this list. I see some new ones to try I addition to some of my favorites (check out my blog post on why I’m giving up Socrative for Kahoot). As if people need even more to try, the list does not include blubbr or Zaption (video-based question tools). It also does not include InfuseLearning, which allows for some very unique response types, such as “drawing, or Schoology (a tool similar to Edmodo but with even greater functionality). Finally, both LessonPaths and Blendspace have excellent quiz features teachers can use with any of the items they have compiled into one lesson (documents from their computer, Web fired, online videos, text they’ve added, etc).
