Pros: The platform provides an easy and safe way to create discussions around online videos.
Cons: Tools to organize or curate comments could help teachers manage the threads, which can sometimes become pretty long.
Bottom Line: This time-based video discussion tool increases interaction for traditional, flipped, or blended classrooms, but might offer more in the way of built-in instruction and assessment features.
