'Success does not come overnight': YouTubers go to class to learn secrets of turning online fame into fortune | PRODUCTION of Video Music clips and songs | Scoop.it

Many people see YouTube stars as the real rock stars of today, but only a select few of them have figured out how to get paid like a guitar god.

YouTube is trying to change that, and this week ran its own school of rock for almost famous video creators.

The recently opened YouTube Space in Toronto wrapped up its first set of workshops designed to help YouTubers grow their channels into a successful livelihood.

The workshops were part of the lead-up to Saturday night's YouTube FanFest, where the site's biggest stars like Toronto's Lilly Singh, a.k.a. Superwoman, will perform and meet their fans....

YouTube Blog: Face blurring: when footage requires anonymity

YouTube Blog: Face blurring: when footage requires anonymity | PRODUCTION of Video Music clips and songs | Scoop.it

 

Yesterday YouTube  added a new feature, that allows users to easily blur faces in the videos they upload.

 

"As citizens continue to play a critical role in supplying news and human rights footage from around the world, YouTube is committed to creating even better tools to help them. According to the international human rights organization WITNESS’ Cameras Everywhere report, “No video-sharing site or hardware manufacturer currently offers users the option to blur faces or protect identity.”


I think this will prove popular with, some, schools.  Whist there may be rare cases when face blurring be appropriate in  a school video, I suspect most of the time it will be used unecessarily. My own view is it sets children 'apart,' creates an atmosphere of mistrust or even makes them look like 'suspects'   Please add your thoughts in the comments.  

 

Having said that, I do think it is a good move on YouTube's part to offer this facility.

TED-Ed | A New Video Platform for learning

TED-Ed | A  New Video Platform for learning | PRODUCTION of Video Music clips and songs | Scoop.it

After the launch of their YouTube channel TED Ed have now announced the TED Ed video platform - with the strapline "Lessons Worth Sharing"

 

As you would expect, the platform is built around content from TED Ed partners and YouTube Edu Partners. Content is organised by subject and context and teachers can build various learning activities, and questions around this content.

 

More importantly the platforms potential reaches out beyond the featured content, orgamised into subjects and themes to any content in YouTube - and that is its strength.  As Chris Anderson of TED states in his post:

 

"the goal is to allow any teacher to take a video of their choice (yes, any video on YouTube, not just ours) and make it the heart of a lesson"

 

Teachers can register to join the platform and create their own video based  learning resources. I think this is an important development in video for learning and the important  thing is that it is open to all around the world.
