Welcome to Knowledge Sharing and Video, the web curation site for my research into the use of web-based video in education.
The ever increasing quantity of openly accessible video on the web means that finding suitable online video to support teaching and learning can be an onerous task. My interest is in exploring how educators use and share web-based video to support teaching and learning, and seeking means to improve discovery.
Knowledge Sharing and Video collects and comments on innovations in the pedagogic use of video, the development of communities of practice in this field and new, relevant research findings.

As part of the Spotlight on the Digital project, which aims to provide practical solutions on how creators and managers of digitised collections can make it easier for people to find (discover) their collections, our Expert group suggested we look into the role social media might play in this.
I think Paola's question is important for all educators with an interst in culture and digitisation> as demonstrate din the LOC Flickr project when people have 'easy' access to good quality digitised content they will engage. As well as ease of access licencing; eg Creative Commons, is also important. If educatoprs and students can build on and share the works it extends their value and can lead to interesting new projects or learning ourcomes. If you know examples of digital content hosted on social media please email Paola; email@example.com and if you can also share some examples or comments here - even better.

With new online platforms offering opportunities for teaching and learning released almost on a daily basis it can be challenging to find out which is best suited to your teaching and learning needs, and how to choose which platform to use and when. This one hour session explores new and emerging developments in online digital media technologies (like YouTube, Facebook, Scoop.it), how they can enrich learning, teaching and assessment, and presents practical selection methods.

At a recent workshop held at the Royal College of Music, Janet ( the UK’s research and education network) demonstrated technologies that enable high quality, synchronous, live music coaching, rehearsal and performance that also has potential for teaching in Drama and Medicine.
Earlier this month the Recording and Augmenting Lectures for Learning project (REC:all), held a well-attended webinar which set out their draft pedagogical framework for lecture capture.
"Findings indicate that a very large percentage of students who watch the videos use them as a helpful tutoring resource and receive several types of improved-learning benefits including improvement in topic understanding, better grades, and greater ease of learning.The weakest students are especially benefited, with significantly reduced course withdrawal rates. Use of video lectures occurs when alternative study resources with the same topic content are always available."
If you use YouTube playlists, to organise and manage videos, you may wish to try out a new feature which will enable you to add intros and outros to the videos in the playlist to " weave individual videos together into a bigger story"
You can create these either as recorded 'to camera' pieces using your built in webcam or as text intros, there are a number of different styles and background effects to choose from. There is also an option to add background music.
The tool can be found in your Playlist settings in the Video Manager, click: Edit Playlist to use.
If students are creating playlist this facility might help them to think crtically about the content and sequences in a playlist.
A free one day workshop is being held at the University of Bristol on Thursday 20th September 2012 to focus on the legal, ethical and other related issues of using recordings with learning and teaching.
"By incorporating audio and video podcasts into the computers and writing classroom, we are better preparing our students for jobs working with podcasting and other digital media, and also providing them a way to reconsider and reapply traditional writing concepts in deeper, more effective ways."

Excellent prototype social annotation site that "allows educators to search, create and enrich descriptions of ICT tools from the Web of Data". We-Share automatically mines tool descriptions from the Web, which are automatically updated by periodically crawling the Web of Data. A great way to find tools for use in teaching and learning.

Classic films, many of which are free to view (with some advertising), are collected here on this auto-generated YouTube channel.
The channel features full length versions of 'The Lodger: A Story of London Fog' (A Hitchcock, UK, 1927), 'The Cabinet of Dr Caligari' (R Wiene, Ger., 1920) and 'Man With a Movie Camera' (D Vertov, USSR, 1929).
The Internet Archive added TV News to its collection yesterday, (Tues.18th Sept). The Archive has captured all (US) news from 20 channels. This is the start of something big and and I hope they will be adding news broadcasts from other countries soon, it is also good to see BBC Worldwide included in the aggregated content.
There is a lot here and to make best use, you would probably need to have a question, topic or search strategy prepared. You can search by keyword, time, program and TV network. There is also a useful word cloud that show recent searches. According Brewster Khale, founder of the internet Archive, this is just the beginning. The copyright debate that is likely to ensue should also prove interesting.
[Note: Use of BBC Worldwide broadcasts are covered under terms of Educational Recording Agency (http://www.era.org.uk/) licencing for UK educational institutions.]

I would suggest; if you are remixing video - this would be an excellent source from which to draw content. It also features a very early remix - Charles A. Ridley's - Nazi Style Lambeth Walk.
