Convert Files - free online file converter and flash video downloader.Convert videos, audio files, documents and ebooks.YouTube to MP3

Convert your files from one file type to another without downloading any software. Convert for free almost any type of ebooks, documents, archives, spreadsheets, audio and video files to your desire file format.Convert YouTube to mp3.
e_learnglobal's insight:

An elearning developer always needs one of these to covert files. Whether it be MP4s from Camtasia into WMV for Windows Media player, or WMV video files to FLV flash files for embedding into authouring tools. I used Zamzar for the last 5 years, but recently it filed several times in downloading large video files. This one didn't so it's my now preferred choice of converter!

e_learnglobal's comment, January 9, 2013 11:46 AM
Here is an update:After an hour trying to work Blubbr out, here's my feedback:

1. There is no help which makes it hard to work it out. It is beta, so i guess it will come

2. All the marketing and reviews make it appear you can play the whole video, when in fact you can only select a series of 30 second clips from the video. Therefore, don't see this as a particularly helpful review tool for training and development, more for people who enjoy trivia and quizzes.

Shame, because it looked promising!

e_learnglobal's insight:

McKinsey Quarterly report found that only 8 percent of organizations actually evaluate the value of L&D initiatives (Palmer, 2010). And too often, those who do track ROI rarely go beyond asking for feedback from participants immediately after the event.

With today’s challenging economy, L&D budgets are receiving more scrutiny than ever. Participant feedback forms (i.e., smiley sheets) administered immediately after a learning program are no longer enough, and HR and talent management professionals are feeling the pressure to look for more solid evidence to justify the investment in their programs.

 

No doubt, same as New Zealand!

So I created one for the elearning showcase in Wellington on the 21st February. It was pretty easy and look forward to sharing on twitter and taking and sharing photos during the event. Only draw back is the Americanisation of the date. I like the fact I can have all of my events on the app and can share via social media during them. It's a great tool and really easy to use. Here's the one for the elearning showcase http://my.yapp.us/J9Y49R.

Afhankelijk van wat je wil, kun je veel - meest Amerikaanse - online programma's vinden die je kunnen helpen bij het maken van podcasts. Van het vinden en opnemen van geluid tot het monteren en distribueren van je podcast.

Ok so I got down to business of creating a podcast, and didn't find any on this very helpful. I did a search and then did find this youtube video (using Podomatic) VERY helpful, as it also includes how to easily get your podcasts onto youtube. Have fun!
