Weavly - Easily create GIF and video mashups! | technologies | Scoop.it
Weavly is an easy and fun tool for creating stunning GIF and video mashups online. Give it a try on weavly.com!
John Dalziel's insight:

Weavly EDU provides a "web tool" that learners can use to create "video mash-ups" and runs directly in their browser.
Mash-ups can include both audio and video clips taken from popular multimedia sites such as...
   - YouTube,
   - SoundCloud, and
   - Vine
...without leaving the Weavly page.

 

Note: learners don’t have to sign up they can get started right away and, practitioners can group and monitor learners' activity during video editing assignments.

Free Broken Link Checker / Online HTML Validator - find dead hyperlinks
John Dalziel's insight:

A "must take a closer look" for web designers and learning providers.
Why?
Because Dead hyperlinks on websites are not just annoying – their existence may cause some real damage to your reputation on the Internet!
As a result, learning providers, and/or others, may:
   - Lose some of the user base (current users sooner or later will get frustrated enough to never come back)
   - Get problems with getting new learners/clients (because of the dead weblinks people simply won't be finding things/pages they are looking for).
   - Damage your reputation online (most of online customers consider stale hyperlinks as demonstration of no respect to them from the web presence's owners)
   - Have negative impact on your website's ratings with major Search Engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing etc

John Dalziel's insight:

Movenote enables learners and practitioners to make video presentations via their browser and/or in their Gmail account.
They can add their content from whatever source they want and, record video alongside to it with their computer, tablet or smartphone.
I do like the seamless integration with Google Drive.
