Subtitle, Caption and Translate Any Video with Amara / Universal Subtitles

Robin Good: Amara / Universal Subtitles is a free web-based service that allows anyone to easily sub-title and add captions to any video. 

 

As long as you have a URL of a published video, Amara makes it very easy to caption it. The clip may be on a video sharing site or embedded in custom video player and Amara can still get to it.

 

Amara is made up of three main parts:

 

a) A subtitle creation and viewing tool (aka the widget)


b) A collaborative subtitling website

 

c) An open protocol for subtitle search/delivery

 

All tools inside Amara are free and open-source.

 

Supported video players and video sharing sites include:

 

Flowplayer JW Player Firefox native player Chrome native player
  YouTube Vimeo Dailymotion blip.tv

 

See examples: http://www.universalsubtitles.org/en/videos/watch/ ;

 

To start subtitling now, go here: http://www.universalsubtitles.org/en/videos/create/  ;

This tool makes video more acessible for EAL learners. Of course, we could create captions with the tools in  Youtube.

'Journey' Augmented Reality Book Brings Heroes and Monsters to Life

'Journey' Augmented Reality Book Brings Heroes and Monsters to Life | ICT hints and tips for the EFL classroom | Scoop.it
'The Art of Journey' uses augmented reality to display the game's art on the viewer's phone in 3D.

Journey captured players’ hearts and imaginations when it was released on the PlayStation Network in February. The game primarily used visuals to move the player forward in a desert world. Now those visuals are captured in an art book that uses augmented reality to bring in-game features to life on the page.

Journey is an entirely wordless game where a hooded character must sojourn across the world to reach the top of a mountain. The story is told through visual cues, and it allows the player to immerse themselves in the world without dialog. The Art of Journey recreates how this world was built by thatgamecompany and artist Matt Naya.

PowerPoint Animation Effect - How to Make a Night City with Lights

This is a tutorial for an advanced Powerpoint animation technique that shows a city at night with moving cars and blinking lights. It was done in PPT 2010 but can be done in other versions as well, since the effects used are not very complicated.

You can also use this technique a variety of other ways -- Christmas lights, fireflies, stars in the sky, electric signs -- and I'm sure in many other way...
