Free Technology for Teachers: 8 Overlooked Useful YouTube Tools

Free Technology for Teachers: 8 Overlooked Useful YouTube Tools | Online Video in Education | Scoop.it

From Richard Byrne's blog - Free Technology for Teachers.

 

My rating 10/10

Stephen Bright's insight:

Very useful summary of the editing tools available in Youtube, with links to tutorials/how to's for each function. Did you know that in Youtube you could: create photo slideshows, create slow-motion video from regular video, create a series of linked videos, blur faces in videos, add captions to your video, add a music track to your video?

 

Thanks to Richard Byrne for this blog post on his Free Technology for Teachers blog - very clear and useful.

"Tellagami, a free iOS app that lets you create short animated movies called "Gamis," is one of my new favorite animation apps to explore. Although the site promotes the app as a way to send greetings and messages for use within social media, I see it as a great tool in the classroom. "

Another great idea from TED-Ed. Video lessons which have four elements - Watch, Think (quiz questions) Dig Deeper (other resources related to the topic) and Discuss (an online forum about a more complex question or series of questions related to the topic. You can also revise and redo existing lessons to suit your educational focus if the current lesson is not on target for what you are doing.

Office Mix

Office Mix | Online Video in Education | Scoop.it

My rating: still exploring

Stephen Bright's insight:

Just had a close encounter with Microsoft Office Mix for Powerpoint. While not a huge fan of Powerpoint, Office Mix, a free add-in for Powerpoint certainly makes the standard slideshow more accessible as a video learning experience, with recorded voice-overs, quizzes and polls available as part of the activities.

 

The add-in (as its name implies) adds a new set of tools to your standard Powerpoint tool set, under the menu item Mix.

 

For Apple Mac, however, you have to install Windows and Office in order for Office Mix to work. Proprietary wars continue!

EDpuzzle | Online Video in Education | Scoop.it

Make any video your lesson. Edit a video by cropping it, adding your voice or embedding questions. Then, track your students with powerful hassle-free analytics.

 

My rating: 8/10

Stephen Bright's insight:

Free for teachers, another tool option for teachers who want to make videos more interactive and engaging for students. Good, clean easy-to-use interface with a variety of questions possible. You can also make audio notes which explain the purpose of watching the video and questions you want students to answer. You can also create a classroom space for students to view your annotated videos.

 

 My initial impressions are very positive.

What 6.9 million clicks tell us about how to fix online education

What 6.9 million clicks tell us about how to fix online education | Online Video in Education | Scoop.it

In a paper published this spring, the CSAIL team outlined some key findings on what online learners want from videos. These include:


Brevity (viewers generally tune out after six minutes)


Informality, with professors seated at a desk, not standing behind a podium


Lively visuals rather than static PowerPoint slides


Fast talkers (professors seen as the most engaging spoke at 254 words per minute)


More pauses, so viewers can soak in complex diagrams


Web-friendly lessons (existing videos broken into shorter chunks are less effective than ones crafted for online audiences)


Via Peter Mellow
Stephen Bright's insight:

Analysis from MIT about the features of online videos used in MOOCs that online learners prefer. Interesting analysis for MOOCs but these features could be applied to videos used in any implementation of blended learning.

 

Also shows that the slick, production theatre videos with a highly professional look may not be the ones that students prefer to watch.

What Makes an Online Instructional Video Compelling? (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu

What Makes an Online Instructional Video Compelling? (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Online Video in Education | Scoop.it
EDUCAUSE Review Online
Stephen Bright's insight:

In-depth research from EDUCAUSE with post-graduate students on what makes online instructional video compelling for the student.

 

Surprise, surprise - one factor is when it is directly linked to assessment in some way. Optimum viewing time is reduced (from the EdX research indicating 6-9 mins) to 4 minutes.Four minutes! While I've always disagreed with videoing hours of lectures, this seems extremely brief to enable meaningful coverage of complex concepts.

 

The use of conversational language and humour by the presenter are also factors in creating more compelling online video.

 

Not exactly startling conclusions, but good to have some research which backs up most teachers' intuitive criteria for engaging video. The sample of interviews is quite small (10 students) so there are limits to the generalisation of these findings.

VideoNot.es

VideoNot.es | Online Video in Education | Scoop.it
The easiest way to take notes from videos. Everything synchronized!

 

My rating: 8/10

Stephen Bright's insight:

A great little app which lets you make synchronised notes while watching a video. The video automatically pauses as you take the notes and timestamps the place in the video so you know which part of it you were watching when you made the note. Works well with Youtube and Coursera videos and on the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox , Safari and Internet Explorer.

 

To add it to your browser (in my case, Chrome) just go to the app webstore, search and download. To access it from your browser click the Chrome apps button on the taskbar and then the Videonot.es icon. And it's free!

 

Thanks to @stephenharlow for demoing this at a student tutorial I went to.

eduCanon: interactive video. unleashed. | Online Video in Education | Scoop.it
Flipped and Blended Interactive Video Learning Platform

 

My Rating: still exploring (but looks promising).

Stephen Bright's insight:

eduCanon is an online learning environment to create and share interactive video lessons. Teachers begin with any YouTube, Vimeo, or TeacherTube video content (screencasts, Khan Academy, Minute Physics, TED, NOVA, etc.) and transform what is traditionally passive content into an active experience for students. By time-linking activities that students engage with as the video progresses the content is segmented into digestible components - increasing student engagement and, through our real-time monitoring, informing the next day’s lesson planning.

 

Some nice features - you can't fast-forward through the material, but you can rewind to review something. Questions can also include feedback for responses chosen, and the video automatically pauses at the point the question is asked. Also there is a large range of question types - not just multiple choice - Reflective pause, fill in the blank, free response, check all that apply. 

 

You can also print out worksheets and the question editor has a built-in equation editor for maths. How well this is used will, of course, depend on the skill of the teacher in constructing relevant and challenging questions, but it is definitely a step up from other video interaction web-based tools.

This is a great online video editing tool which actually adapts the complexity of the functions available according to the 'level of experience' questions that you input before you start using it.
