Video analysis is an effective way to increase student engagement and relevance. Student love analyzing real situations, especially ones they recorded themselves.

We introduced two new features that allow Pivot Interactives users to upload their own videos:

Student Upload: Teachers make an activity (or copy this one from the Pivot Interactives library). The instructions guide students to upload their own video, and use the Pivot Interactive tools to analyze it. Here are detailed instructions for making this type of activity.

Teacher Upload: Teacher make an activity (or copy this one from the Pivot Interactives library). While editing the activity, teachers upload their own video for students to analyze. When students view the activity, they’ll see the teacher’s video and instructions for analysis. Here are detailed instruction for how teachers can make activities that feature their own videos.

We also introduced the Community Library, which provides a way for teachers to collaborate by sharing activities they’ve created. Instructors who use Pivot Interactives can share their activities, or search by author or keyword to find activities made by other teachers. Here are instructions for using the Community Library.
