Watch Frame by Frame - Watch YouTube & Vimeo videos frame by frame 

Watch Frame by Frame - Watch YouTube & Vimeo videos frame by frame  | technologies |
Watch Frame by Frame allows you to watch YouTube and Vimeo videos frame by frame and in slow motion.
John Dalziel's insight:
Video Clips are being used more and more within teaching and learning and there are many ways to watch on-line videos.
'Watch Frame by Frame' enables users to watch YouTube or Vimeo Video Clips in slow motion and/or frame-by-frame. Viewing videos at slower than usual speed can help learners catch things they tend to miss at normal speed. 
Users just need to... 
  - type (or paste) in the video link from YouTube or Vimeo and 
  - choose the appropriate settings. 
There are four controls users can tweak. 
  1: Next to the frame-by-frame playback controls there is a clock which can be toggled to show the movement of frames. 
  2 - 4: allow users to set the steps at a set speed and frames per second. 
Practitioners can share links with their learners - e.g. - but may also wish to suggest the settings to use when viewing. NOTE: I'm sure you are aware that YouTube does already have playback speed settings hidden in plain sight. 
  - Click the Settings icon in the lower-right corner of the playback window (the little cog symbol). 
  - Select Speed from the pop-up overlay which appears. 
  - Choose 0.25 or 0.5 for slow speeds. You can also speed it up by choosing a higher speed. 
Watch Frame by Frame is a useful tool to enhance visual learning!

Knowmia | technologies |


- offers a collection of curated videos that have been vetted by teachers for quality and accuracy;

- has launched with 7,000 videos organized under the main headings of English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Technology, and World Languages.


Users are encouraged to contribute so I expect that the collection will grow rapidly.


Most of the content is drawn from Youtube and Vimeo.


There is also a free iPad app, with effective tutorial support, that appears to be a powerful and extremely flexible tool for creating video lessons for upload to knowmia’s collection (Requires iOS 5.0 or later). Hopefully, an Android option will be available soon.

Lots of great content on Knowmia but do keep in mind that it is a subscription service.

Sync Video - watch youtube and vimeo videos together

Sync Video - watch youtube and vimeo videos together | technologies |
Ever wanted to watch a video on YouTube or Vimeo simultaneously with your friends, who are not exactly sitting next to you? Now you can watch videos synchronized!
John Dalziel's insight:

Watching YouTube videos with learners is engaging but what if learners are not in the same place as the practitioner, or even in the same country? Sync Video offers the opportunity to create an online room where practitioners and their learners can watch a YouTube video simultaneously, by having it synced to all those who are in the room watching it.
Does this have potential in BYOD, Flipped learning, etc., as well?

Sounds really useful for distance learning, particularly if you need to explain additional info for people with sensory impairments - you know you are describing the bit they've got to rather than some other random bit of the video!
