Something for the multiumedia curator's toolbox. 

Jesús Torres Junquera's curator insight, March 4, 2013 10:05 AM

En palabras de Robin Good, desde donde rescoopit-amos esta nueva herramienta: 

Annotag es una nueva aplicación web que permite etiquetar y anotar cualquier clip de vídeo: grabado o cargado desde YouTube o Vimeo.
Gracias a ello se puede pasar fácilmente a las partes que se deseen de cualquier vídeo etiquetado: así resultará más accesible e informativo.

Una vez marcado y anotado un vídeo se podrá compartir en de sus canales preferidos de medios sociales o utilizar el "código de inserción" para publicar en su sitio web.

Annotag permite crear múltiples categorías en el canal, con objeto de facilitar la agrupación de los clips en carpetas.

Es posible añadir colaboradores adicionales: editores a su canal, integrar los comentarios de Disqus, Google Analytics y seleccionar un canal público "look" de la página Annotag propia, eligiendo entre una variedad de diferentes plantillas ya preparadas.
