TED-Ed's mission is to capture and amplify the voices of great educators around the world. We do this by pairing extraordinary educators with talented animators to produce a new library of curiosity-igniting videos.
A new site, which will launch in early April 2012, will feature these new TED-Ed Originals as well as some powerful new learning tools.
Also, we are happy to extend an open invitation for the nomination of educators and animators and the suggestion of lesson ideas.

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.

La start-up française Viewrz, spécialiste de la capture et du partage de vidéo, innove avec une nouvelle fonctionnalité : couper une vidéo YouTube pour en faire un extrait exportable directement sur Facebook et Twitter.
En 4 jours, plus de 2000 VU ont été enregistrées sur le site de Viewrz, et ce sont les scènes cultes de films comme La Classe Américaine et OSS 117 , et des passages courts de sketches célèbres qui sont le plus plébiscitées par les utilisateurs. En moyenne, les séquences embedées sur Facebook sont de 15 secondes, et sont postées en commentaires.

From the original article: "Did you know that major search engines want you to make video sitemaps for all of your embeds, even if you're hosting on Vimeo or Youtube?
Not only does it help them spider your website by giving the search engines clues as to where to look for video embeds, it may also earn your site a click through boost by giving you a picture in the SERP.
There are several reasons why you'll want to add a video sitemap.
It makes it clear to Google what your content is.

In an interesting move, Salaman Khan is opening up the Khan Academy to crowdsourced videos which will be curated by his team.
I think this is extremely encouraging and opens up a whole new horizon for the development and use of video for learning.

WeVideo, a newly launched cloud-based collaborative video editing platform, is today announcing integration with YouTube. Starting this afternoon, YouTube users will be able to access a basic version of WeVideo’s online service in order to edit their video clips by adding titles, effects, animation, music, narration and more.
The editing tool will be provided directly on YouTube itself at YouTube.com/create.
To be clear, WeVideo is not the only editing tool that Google’s online service provides, but it hopes to soon to be the most robust. YouTube’s own editor is fairly basic, and other tools like Magisto are more limited in scope. With WeVideo, the goal is to bring a more full-featured, professional-grade video-editing solution to the cloud that’s also easy enough for anyone to use...
