Could be better...
I get the purpose of this app and in concept it’s very useful. It can be a very valuable tool in the classroom because it lets you answer questions as you watch the video. I’ve gotten some pretty easy grades from this app. However there are many aspects of this app that make it rather inconvenient. The app tends to lag when you tilt your screen or try to do full screen mode. The time stamps can be pretty finicky. When I speed through the video to get to a part with important information it will sometimes glitch and send me back to the beginning. The way the multiple choice questions are set up can also be inconvenient. They are all set up as checklists. When I try to change my answer by clicking on another one it will highlight both answers. The questions don’t always clarify how many answers are needed so this can be problematic. Overall I think the app is alright at best. While these aspects don’t completely diminish the app’s usefulness, they make using it a tedious experience.
Fellow teachers & administrators!
To all school faculty members, this app works amazingly well. There may have been bugs in the past, but it works smoothly now. In fact, I would say the only bug is that it pestered so many young people to lash out against it. So many of the reviews for this app come the scorn of students. Teacher do not want students to skip through the videos. Teachers can see how much of the video each student watched along with how many times they view segments. Teacher see what questions students missed and got correct. Students do see the mistakes they make. Students can see the results and even review the videos.
How do I know this? I am a teacher that always tests the technology out thoroughly to make sure students can use it easily. Plus, I like to troubleshoot any problems they may have when using unfamiliar tools. This app works.
Okay so I will admit, this app did help my grade when I got easy hundreds and that was a pleasure, however this app isn’t fair in the way it projects the answers. I will have to ask my teacher to resend me the video twice because the app marked questions wrong I got right. For example, one question asked me something it just discussed and I picked the right answer, what I did not know is I had to pick more than one which wasn’t explained properly or at all. Sometimes it will ask a question before the video discusses it and it doesn’t even give you a chance to fix ur mistake. I feel like the app would be better if students could fix their mistakes for points back or at least half points for the question they got wrong. Not allowing students to fix their mistakes doesn’t teach them why they got their answer wrong and it doesn’t encourage them to want to do the assignments provided. This app SHOULD be giving students a grade boost but instead gives them extra stress, wasted time, and poor results.
not the worst
Honestly, this app I would rather do than do class work with text books and stuff. But, especially on a student’s grade, this app should be more careful with their bugs and glitches because it is risking someone’s grade. There’s bugs, like you can’t answer a question or something and no matter how long you refresh it it won’t work which makes it frustrating and puts a lot of stress, especially when the assignment is due. Another is the multi choice questions. If you change your mind, you press another answer, but it marks it as you chose TWO questions and ends up getting the question wrong. Lastly it is the time. It’s really finicky with the time stamps, so you can’t go back sometimes or sometimes you’re forced to go watch through the whole thing or whatever just to get where you completed. Even though this app has a lot of bugs, would much rather do this than have to carry around a text book everyday..
This app is horribly made
I just want to give up trying to use this app but my school is requiring it. There are so many issues with it. First of all, there is no way to skip or fast forward, so if there are announcements not directed towards you there is no way of skipping it. Also, it makes other issues 1000x worse. For example, there is a glitch I keep having that sends me back to the beginning when I pause, making lessons that require taking notes impossible. In addition, if the app crashes or your phone gets turned off it sends you back. Also, sometimes full screening changes where in the video you are. I’ve used it for 1 week and all these issues have already surfaced, so I can only imagine how much worse it could be. Honestly if you are given the choice of whether to use this I plead you not to, as you’d be more likely to have your work successfully submitted by throwing a paper airplane and hoping it lands on your teacher’s lawn.
I can’t log in.
By sad, very sad student
This app was fine for about two days, but recently, I have been completely unable to log in. I have taken the link from the web page provides by my educator, and when I open the app, I tried to log in. So far I have tried every possible way of logging in on there, and none work. When logging in with google, I inputted my email address and hit go, but it took me back to the exact same page. The next button is not even functional, and I had to use return on the keyboard. Setting up an account will not let you see the assignment, and signing in in general has the same issue as google. I have deleted and reinstalled the app three times, but the problem persists. For fellow students, I agree with you all with your issues, as I have had most of them also, and for teachers, if you use this app, do not be surprised if there are reoccurring issues. This has caused my somewhat okay grade to drop almost five percent. Please fix!
Worst app ever
I did several assignments on this stupid app and for one thing, you can’t skip through the video at all, you’re forced to watch through the whole video, wasting time if you just want to get through the thing, and you have to watch the whole video just to complete the assignment. This app glitched and said I had turned in all of my assignments and when I checked it this weekend it told me I hadn’t finished a video even though it clearly told me I had, I refreshed the page a few times after just to make sure and checked the completed section and it was there. Now this app has possibly cost me points in my class because it decided to glitch and say I didn’t finish the video. I JUST HAD TO FINISH WATCHING THE VIDEO NOT EVEN THE QUESTIONS, I did those already but it still wouldn’t accept that. This app is pointless and I can’t even trust it to work, worst app ever if it glitches because now my work could be counted as late when I did everything before it was due.
WORST APP EVER!!

This app is a nightmare sometimes I click into the app and it make me log in again. Many times when you accidentally click out of the video unfortunately the app will make you watch the whole entire video and make you answer the same questions you already answered. This app locks where you can’t move on and when you do that it will move it to the part where you already watched. This app should take out were teachers can comment, sometimes if you get it wrong some teachers will say things that some people won’t like. The thing that I HATE the MOST is that when you click on a answer choice but think there is another answer that you would like to pick instead the app doesn’t take the first choice that you picked it selects both of them. THIS IS THE WORST APP EVER. It’s like 2 amateurs created this app. 😡

Look, I completely understand the concept of this app and I like the idea. However, this app came up short by a mile. It’s pretty self evident at this point. I have looked through your reviews for myself and have to agree with what everyone is saying. The fact that you can’t skip in the video if needed is extremely aggravating. I can only hope I will not have to use this app for class work in the future if these annoying mechanics continue to stay implemented. I’d ask you to please please please consider making the videos easier to navigate through. I mean, I have experienced moments where it made me start over an ENTIRE video because I accidentally skipped ahead. The system in which you limit our access to certain parts of your videos is flawed. Please listen to your reviews.
Not too great
By clowny clown clown
Honestly, I understand the purpose of this app, but it just doesn’t work well. One problem is that if I select an answer ,in a multiple choice question, but I end up changing my mind, it’ll select both answers and mark it wrong. Second of all, it glitches a lot. If I tilt my screen while using this it glitches and makes me restart the video. Lastly, I’ve never used this app before distance learning and my teacher sent the class a link to do the work. It never once asked me to create an account or make a password. Today when I went to the assignment, it told me to sign in, but it NEVER asked me to create an account so I don’t know what I’m supposed to do. Long story short, this app is pretty bad and I don’t think it’s that great of a learning tool.
