There are several online tools that let you input the url address of a text or email, or let you paste your own text into it, and then the site automatically “outputs” interactive questions or games to test student comprehension.
I’ve had some concerns about these kinds of tools in the past (which is why I have the “Best” in the headline in quotation mark) since some, at least, did not let you edit them once they were created. That might or might not still be an issue – I just haven’t checked them recently. If you can edit them, these tools can be timesavers and excellent ways to help students learn.
Several, though not all, of the tools I’m listing here have been specifically created to help language learners, though they can obviously be used for other students, too.
I’m sure there are others out there – please let me know what I’m missing!
Here’s what I have right now:
The wonderful IslCollective will turn any YouTube video into an interactive vocabulary or grammar game.
Yippity will use Artificial Intelligence to create a quiz out of any text you paste into it.
