      I did not use this tool in class since my students have their assessments coming up and we needed to spend time on those. However, I have used VideoAnt before as a student. It was in a German language lesson and I found it really helped me. It was different from just your average listening skills exercise in the book and the topic was quite interesting. It was also a chance for me to review the video as many times as I needed to pick out the extra information that was not necessarily relevant to the questions. I felt the discussion we then had in class was very enriching since we all had a good idea of what would be discussed. However, the fact that some of the students hadn’t done it made it a bit difficult for the teacher to handle. I can see this happening with my students so I would definitely think of how to manage the fact that you hardly ever get 100% students to do the work.
