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.

An anthropological introduction to YouTube

Michael Wesch presented this  "at the Library of Congress, June 23rd 2008. This was tons of fun to present. I decided to forgo the PowerPoint and instead worked with students to prepare over 40 minutes of video for the 55 minute presentation"


Michael's analysis of YouTube draws the connections between video, Web technology and ourselves; exploring how these have changed behaviours and relationships.


Whilst the numbers have grown exponentially, some of the demographics may have shifted,  and the YouTube platform has evolved since this was put together; this is still essential viewing if you are interested in developing the potential of Video for Learning.


The timecoded bookmarks are invaluable in helping get the most from this reosurce.  


Thanks to Oliver Quinlan for reminding me about this!
