YouTube: Easily create video intros and outros

YouTube: Easily create video intros and outros | Learning in a digital environment | Scoop.it

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.

Guy Cowley's comment, August 16, 2012 12:16 PM
I am investigating blogging as part of my EMA. I want to establish how many H800 students maintain their blog on an active basis. Checking whether you see this message among comments to your recent blog seemed a good way to do this.
Please at least confirm that you have read this message by emailing me on guy@jugu.org.
If you have time, could you please comment on the following questions:
• How often do you blog?
• What is the main purpose e.g. reflective, study information, public statement?
• As a learner, have you found blogging helpful as a learning tool?
• If you are a practitioner, do you have experience of using a blog as a teaching resource?
Thanks for your time. Let me know if I can help you in any way.

UNESCO Working Paper Series on Mobile Learning

UNESCO Working Paper Series on Mobile Learning | Learning in a digital environment | Scoop.it

Today there are over 5.9 billion mobile phone subscriptions worldwide, and for every one person who accesses the internet from a computer two do so from a mobile device. Given the ubiquity and rapidly expanding functionality of mobile technologies, UNESCO is enthusiastic about their potential to improve and facilitate learning, particularly in communities where educational opportunities are scarce.

Mobile games are quickly appearing in many dimensions of our lived environment, but few go beyond the small screen. Mobile games that are particularly innovative or locative are often low-profile, focusing on art, or civics at the neighborhood level. The big picture for such games has been hard to see.
