Today we played with all kinds of tools that could be used to increase the rigor of assignments. Here’s a list, but please add to it by responding to this post!

VideoANT http://ant.umn.edu
A video annotation tool that could be used in a flipped classroom scenario or for student responses/discussion to a video.
