Makale Özeti: The use of videos in education has a long history, and there are a number of ways, in which they can be used in teaching and learning languages. Developments in digital technologies now add to this versatility in language education. One such development is the use of interactive videos. However, interactive videos are rarely used in instructional contexts despite their potential benefits. A possible reason for this is that this innovative tool is hardly known in the field. Therefore, this study discusses the potential affordances of adding interactivity to video lectures or any video that can be used in a language classroom. Once equipped with interactive elements, videos can function as instructional tools by fulfilling various functions, such as assessing students formatively, providing them instant feedback, checking if students view videos at home for a flipped class, teaching vocabulary items in context and holding discussion sessions by using videos as an input. In addition, interactive videos can be used to monitor student responses to questions and their video-watching behavior through the use of analytical tools that most interactive video platforms offer. Keeping such benefits in mind, this study reviews major tools used to add interactivity to videos on YouTube or similar platforms and compares them with respect to various criteria, such as the amount of interactivity provided, cost and so forth. In addition, interactive video tools are examined from a critical perspective with a focus on major benefits and drawbacks.
