Free Technology for Teachers: VideoNotes - A Great Tool for Taking Notes While Watching Academic Videos

Free Technology for Teachers: VideoNotes - A Great Tool for Taking Notes While Watching Academic Videos | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

VideoNotes is a neat new tool for taking notes while watching videos. VideoNotes allows you to load any 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.

theo kuechel's insight:

I have just made a test VideoNote for a YouTube clip and all seemed to work very well. It is very easy to set up and use immediatley and there is some help if required. The response when clicking the annotated notes to access the correct point in the timeline was instantaneous. I would have liked to see the timecode in the notes window  - hopefully that will become available. I have not expored the download option in detail 


I have used Videopaper3  http://vpb.archive.concord.org/ previously, (V.4 is is still in a closed beta - a mistake I think), what I like about this tool is that it is online and saves to Google Drive. Also the sharing options open up so many collaborative opportunies at all levels of education, from early school to tertiary education.


It is interesting to note that the page is badged with the Logos of some of the major online learning providers, including Coursera and Khan. I would like to know more about the provenance of the resource and hopefully a more detailed about page will become available. Great Potential for use of video in learning.

Udacity, Amara Partner To Provide Free College Courses In Almost Any Language - Forbes

Udacity, Amara Partner To Provide Free College Courses In Almost Any Language - Forbes | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

Udacity, one of the world's leading online education portals, yesterday announced a partnership with translation platform Amara  to caption and translate more than 5,000 educational videos using student volunteers.


This epic undertaking is significant for a several reasons, it offers a democratisation of video content by making it globally accessible and relevant, and it offers real world experience to students.  Teachers might wish to consider this type of task for their own students,  it is much more meaningful than making endless ppts, and helps develop real media skills within a digital literacy context.
