Here are some examples of content ideas for interactive video content as well as best practices that are already employed by various universities and colleges across the U.S.
- Create ways for the professor and students to provide recorded or written feedback on the video
- Embed a quiz at frequent intervals during the video
- Use a glass chalkboard that allows the professor to face the students and make notations with a neon marker during a recorded lecture
- Change activities on the video at least every ten minutes
- Use a poll to record student reaction to the course material
- Create a chatroom for the professor to discuss the material with the students during the video
- Assign a case study for students to work on that offers recorded feedback
