TubeChop - Chop YouTube Videos

TubeChop - Chop YouTube Videos | iPad pilot at King's | Scoop.it

TubeChop allows you to easily chop a funny or interesting section from any YouTube video and share it. This is a nifty website that lets you 'chop' an interesting portion of a Youtube video and share just that bit - good for when you have a key scene for a class to view but you don't want to play the whole video clip. The shortened clip can be accessed via a unique link or by using the embed code the website provides.

 

Easy to use and very functional. Thanks to @Karin Gilbert - check out her video-related scoop.it page videosforlearning from the link below.

 

My rating: 9/10

How To Capture Ideas Visually With The iPad

How To Capture Ideas Visually With The iPad | iPad pilot at King's | Scoop.it

Visual recording is what it sounds like it’d be. As opposed to recording audio, visual recording captures visuals, though not necessarily in photographic form. The process of visually capturing ideas with the iPad isn’t terribly complex in concept. If you can think of concept-mapping, you’ve halfway there.

You Won’t Find Better Styluses than the Architect and the Emote from Arctic – iPad Gear Review | PadGadget | iPad pilot at King's | Scoop.it
As a stylus aficionado, I want to let everyone in on a little secret. When it comes to styluses, the tip is almost entirely unimportant – you are going to get the same writing results with almost any stylus.

 

KF:  worth reading before you go investing in expensive sylii - the ones I use are from DX and all cost less than $3 each (inc postage)

"There aren’t a great deal of alternatives for YouTube fans on the iOS App Store, but for those who consume a lot of videos on their devices then the Jasmine YouTube Client for iOS is definitely worth checking out. The Jasmine application is fully iPhone 5 compatible and looks beautiful on the new 1136×640 display. It is also a universal app meaning that it is fully compatible with the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad."

It is always nice to learn from those who have traveled the road before.  This is a very thoughtful list of administrative tasks to complete when beginning an iPad or 1:1 deployment.

50 Must-Download Apps For Lifelong Learners | Edudemic | iPad pilot at King's | Scoop.it

"Long after degrees have been conferred and careers have been launched, many folks just can’t seem to quit school. For them, life provides an overstuffed cornucopia of educational opportunities that don’t necessarily require hefty loans and navigating different professorial strategies."

 

KF:  The usual caveats apply with these TOP OF THE CHARTS lists - the iPad is a personal device and people use them very differently - preferences for apps are not necessarily ubiquitous.

Read a sample or download Hot Apps 4 HOTS by Lisa Johnson & Yolanda Barker with iBooks.

 

KF:  An interesting implementation of iBook as a directory for eductaional apps.  Will be curious to see how they keep it up-to-date  over time.  Certainly provides a great support for anyone just embarking in this area, and a few surprises to those of us who think we've seen it all.
