Description: Video Ant allows users to enter the URL of a video from YouTube or another site. This uploads the video to Video Ant, which then allows the user to annotate the video, stopping the video at specific points. Users can share the Video Ant with other users, giving them annotation permissions or viewing only permissions. When given annotating privileges, it creates opportunities for collaborative discussions at important moments in the video.

Kristina P.This site is great for encouraging discussion when comparing and contrasting a video to the text. The annotations can also be used to stop students at specific points in a video and require them to reflect. A constraint is that the video must be web-based. Additionally, students will need to create a log in to use the site.
