InsertLearning

InsertLearning is an interactive toolbar which teachers can add to any webpage, with videos, annotations, questions and comments on the content, which they can then assign to their students. It functions as an extension to Chrome and needs to be installed by both teachers and students before being used. Instructions for use, and examples, are provided when it is installed. Students’ answers and comments can also be graded using this extension.

Evaluation: This is a great, interactive tool which can increase students’ learning experience by providing a wide range of features that can be added to web pages. It can help students understand and reflect on the content in different ways; for example, by highlighting/asking questions about parts of the text, inserting related videos or adding discussion topics for the whole class to get involved. The free version limits the amount of lessons you can create using this tool. However the number of students you can share your lessons with is unlimited, as is access to all of the features of the toolbar.

Cost: Free, with registration, premium plans available
