How To Find Openly Licensed Educational Resources You Can Use [Infographic]

How To Find Openly Licensed Educational Resources You Can Use [Infographic] | The virtual classroom | Scoop.it

Posted by Jeff Hurt

 

"Most of us turn to the internet when we are looking for resources to use for a presentation, report or article. The internet holds the key to so many robust resources.

 

"Yet how many of these resources can you legally use for free? How many of them can you adapt?

 

"That’s where Open Educational Resources (OER) can help. Here’s an infographic from the Center for Open Educational Resources and Language Learning (at the University of Texas at Austin) that can help."

A great list of suggestions, but overall and taking a look at #9, the key is connecting, building a relationship. Let's make sure we keep social-emotional learning (SEL) always in mind as a priority when we look to creating the education of tomorrow.

Videonotes : video annotation

VideoNotes allows you to load a YouTube video on the left side of your screen and on the right side of the screen VideoNotes gives you a notepad to type on. 
VideoNotes integrates with your Google Drive account. By integrating with Google Drive VideoNotes allows you to share your notes and collaborate on your notes just as you can do with a Google Document. 

It’s as simple as this: sign in with a Google account (VideoNotes uses Google Drive for storage) and then paste in the URL for a YouTube or Coursera video. Then as it plays you can start making notes on the right-hand side of the screen.

The clever bit is that as you click on previous notes you’ve made, the video will jump to that point, making this a really useful tool for navigating documentaries, study guides and other long, involved videos.
