VideoANT: A free video annotation tool

VideoANT: A free video annotation tool | TELT | Scoop.it
I have used VideoANT for a number of things. Here are some ideas to get your started:

Bookmarking sections of the video: I mark the start of the section I would like my students to watch and add the questions in the ‘Content’ section of the annotation. Students then click on the time marker and watch that part of the video. They can then add their responses/answers by clicking on the ‘Respond’ button.
Video slideshows: Students make a screencast of their slide presentation and then share it with other students who can then comment on things. I encourage students to add ‘audience participation’ questions to their presentation so students can add comments using the annotation tool.
Mini lessons: I make a short video lesson and then post it for students to watch and add questions and even writing practice in the annotation.
Group projects: Students in groups watch the video separately, adding their comments so they can then come together in class to discuss their findings.
Transcripts: Some videos on YouTube have transcripts, but many don’t. You can add your own transcripts this way by adding your annotation before the text in the video.

Shona Whyte's insight:

Nice presentation about using digital images. Don't be put off by the technical part at the beginning (vector versus bitmap) which seems to need some oral explanation.  Hang on for tips on searching and crediting, and especially the recommended sites at the end.

Reel App: Host and embed PPT and PDF files without registration | TELT | Scoop.it
Sharing images, PPT, and PDF files with students is simple enough, but to view the files online or embed them in a website, you would normally need to complete some sort of registration. That is where Reel App comes along.

Table of keyboard shortcuts - Wikipedia

Table of keyboard shortcuts

In computing, a keyboard shortcut is a sequence or combination of keystrokes on a computer keyboard which invokes commands in software. Some keyboard shortcuts require the user to press a single key or a sequence of keys one after the other. Other keyboard shortcuts require pressing and holding several keys simultaneously.

Shona Whyte's insight:

I keep needing to look this page up - maybe it will be useful to others.  Mac, PC and more, organised by programme and function.

Voice Typing In Google Docs: Chrome extension

To use voice typing in Google Docs simply open the "tools" drop-down menu and select "voice typing." When you make that selection a microphone icon will appear in the margin of your document. Once the icon appears, click it, allow Google to access your microphone, and start talking. Your spoken words will almost instantly appear on in the document.

iPad courses on iTunesU

iPad courses on iTunesU | TELT | Scoop.it

By utilising iPad in a 1:1 environment or even 1:some then you are able to break free from the classroom and the traditional ways of disseminating content. By creating courses that contain learning materials, tasks, assignments, reference points and now with iTunes U 2.0 the discussions, you can now take the classroom wherever you need. Beyond the classroom and even further if using 1:1 or BYOD, students take the learning home with them and can continue learning in their own time, totally blurring the lines between school and home (which are becoming more and more different as schools fail to embrace the world around them and the tools students have in their own homes.)
