Ein weiterer Service für Content Curation (neben scoop.it, learnist und vielen weiteren)...

Habe EduClipper noch nicht intensiv angeschaut, aber der Service scheint für meinen Geschmack zu sehr auf Grafikelemente / Bilder ausgerichtet zu sein. Ich persönlich bevorzuge Services, die die Kommentare stärker in den Vordergrund stellen und hier möglichst viele Formatierungsmöglichkeiten bieten.

Do you have your own YouTube channel? Celebrate GEEK WEEK!

 

Maybe you have a social one you started years ago when you first joined YouTube, but consider creating a professional (or school!)  channel that you can share playlists or post your school's cool videos that you create! GoAnimate also works well with YouTube!

 

If you already have one, consider pimping it up & making it look pretty! They recently changed their look & I gotta re-do my schools channel but I did update my personal professional one - take a peek!
