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!

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.
