Teachers will need to be able to utilize the video correctly when providing clarification during the class discussion (if necessary). If a student needs clarification on any portion of the video, for instance, teacher will need to be able to manipulate the “ball” (displayed at the bottom portion of the video where the “play” button is located) that students will be able to view the respective portion that needs further clarification. Additionally, teachers will need to possess knowledge in how to stop and start the video (if necessary).
