VITAL: Video Interactions for Teaching and Learning

Welcome to Video Interactions for Teaching and Learning (VITAL)

Video Interactions for Teaching and Learning (VITAL) is a Web-based learning environment that enables students to view, analyze, and communicate ideas with video. VITAL was originally created to help students practice their observation and interpretation skills in developmental psychology courses at Teachers College, Columbia University. Currently, VITAL is deployed in a wide range of courses and disciplines across Columbia University, from the School of Social Work to the School of the Arts.

VITAL is administered by the Columbia Center for New Media Teaching and Learning (CCNMTL) for courses at Columbia University and select partners outside the university. VITAL is accessible only by students and instructors registered for courses that use VITAL. If you are a member of a VITAL course and have trouble logging in, please contact CCNMTL at
