Live Video Streaming: Google Hangouts On-Air Now Available for All

From Google's official announcement: "Today we're excited to launch Hangouts On Air to Google+ users worldwide. 

 

With just a few clicks, you’ll be able to: Broadcast publicly. By checking "Enable Hangouts On Air," you can broadcast your live hangout—from the Google+ stream, to your YouTube channel or your website—to the entire world.

 

See how many viewers you’ve got. During your broadcast, you can look inside the hangout to see how many people are watching live.

 

Record and re-share. Once you're off the air, we’ll upload a public recording to your YouTube channel, and to your original Google+ post. This way it's easy to share and discuss your broadcast after it's over.

 

Of course, launching millions of live stations takes some doing, so we're rolling out Hangouts On Air gradually, over the next few weeks."

 

Some very good news, that many of us in education been waiting on for quite a while. Having facility to combine video conferencing with broadcasting and publishing will  really extend what is possible in collaborative learning spaces for schools, colleges and educational projects around the world.

TED-Ed | A New Video Platform for learning

TED-Ed | A  New Video Platform for learning | видео для образования | Scoop.it

After the launch of their YouTube channel TED Ed have now announced the TED Ed video platform - with the strapline "Lessons Worth Sharing"

 

As you would expect, the platform is built around content from TED Ed partners and YouTube Edu Partners. Content is organised by subject and context and teachers can build various learning activities, and questions around this content.

 

More importantly the platforms potential reaches out beyond the featured content, orgamised into subjects and themes to any content in YouTube - and that is its strength.  As Chris Anderson of TED states in his post:

 

"the goal is to allow any teacher to take a video of their choice (yes, any video on YouTube, not just ours) and make it the heart of a lesson"

 

Teachers can register to join the platform and create their own video based  learning resources. I think this is an important development in video for learning and the important  thing is that it is open to all around the world.
