8 Steps to Creating Accessible Video

8 Steps to Creating Accessible Video | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

Video is great. It can help you get your message across quickly, entertainingly, and provide a bit of character. Visitors are often more likely to watch a short video than they are to read a wall of text.


Studies report  that an incredible 65% of search results are pages with video. Gian walks us through what you need to know to make accessible video content.

theo kuechel's insight:

There are many good sites on  the Web that deal with making effective videos,  making videos accessible  though, is an area that  is often overlooked. I think this evidence based web resource may go a help greatly in addressing this important issue.

STEMbite: Transforming Video Lessons with Google Glass

STEMbite: Transforming Video Lessons with Google Glass | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

Two months ago, I received Google Glass. No, I don’t work for Google, and I’m not a software developer. I am an online science teacher, one of the only teachers in the world to have the highly coveted device. Naturally, I figured I should do something useful with it. So I started STEMbite, a series of video lessons on math and science that I film through Google Glass"

theo kuechel's insight:

Google Glass has recieved a great deal of negative press in recent months, and much of it from the education sector.  Andrew Vanden Heuvel flips that coin to show the other side, using Google Glass to create some very interesting and enlightening  first-person video clips relating to Science and Maths topics. Examples include  Seed Dispersal and the Physics of Mirrors.You can find these and more on STEMbite's  YouTube Channel


Perthaps this technique will establish itself as another 'important' video style alongside thiose developed by RSA and  CommonCraft.  I think this does extend the potential for the educational user generated video and may inspire lots of innovative approaches. What do others think?

STEMbite looks like a very promising resource.

edyssee's curator insight, June 29, 2013 7:49 AM

Könnten selbstgedrehte Unterrichtsfilmchen eine nützliche Anwendung für Googles umstrittene Datenbrille sein? Erste experimentelle Beispiele sind in diesem Beitrag beschrieben.

Ob dafür wirklich Google Glass benötigt wird?

Links from #ukedchat sessions | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

#ukedchat added something new to their normal twitter chat hour this week. Teachers were invited, beforehand to create a short 3-5 minute video and upload it to YouTube or Vimeo, then share the links which would be tweeted out for the audience to watch, and comment, on in real time during the TeachTweet event#ukedchat has curated the video's here on Scoop.it  for further viewing and comment.


I think this is a very innovative and welcome approach to teachers for several reasons:

  1. By moving the media format from text to video, it suggests new ways of  connecting with an audience.
  2. The resources will not disappear into the ether because the half life of a video is significantly longer than that of a tweet.
  3. The video resources can be shared and embedded in other content and resources for CPD.
  4. This provides another way for teachers to share resources and ideas.

Hopefully these videos will attract lots of comments.

YouTube Blog: Face blurring: when footage requires anonymity

YouTube Blog: Face blurring: when footage requires anonymity | Video for Learning | Scoop.it


Yesterday YouTube  added a new feature, that allows users to easily blur faces in the videos they upload.


"As citizens continue to play a critical role in supplying news and human rights footage from around the world, YouTube is committed to creating even better tools to help them. According to the international human rights organization WITNESS’ Cameras Everywhere report, “No video-sharing site or hardware manufacturer currently offers users the option to blur faces or protect identity.”


I think this will prove popular with, some, schools.  Whist there may be rare cases when face blurring be appropriate in  a school video, I suspect most of the time it will be used unecessarily. My own view is it sets children 'apart,' creates an atmosphere of mistrust or even makes them look like 'suspects'   Please add your thoughts in the comments.  


Having said that, I do think it is a good move on YouTube's part to offer this facility.

The European Video for ALL educational project is a European project that will bring together all current methodologies, ideas and innovative practices to teach and learn languages by integrating digital video.

Teachers may be interested in joining, or following this  language focused video project, which involves partners from six EU countries. As well as some examples of different 'types' of educational video the project shares a comprehensive curated repository of useful video resources including, amongst others; papers and articles, web resources, and social media spaces.


It's early days and I look forward to seeing more examples of the student produced videos,

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.


Via Ann S. Michaelsen
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.

What will we do Twitter's new video sharing service VINE?

What will we do Twitter's new video sharing service VINE? | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

"Twitter has launched a new service. Called VINE it allows users to take 6 second video clips on their SMARTphones and Tablets and then share them via twitter (and facebook).  Once taken, the 6 second clips loop, which is either intensely annoying or a great spur to make creative videos which enthrall people (depending on your points of view). My first VINE attempt is above, simply my daughter spinning round in a playground"



I was going to post about Vine but Matt has beaten me to it - and done a much better job. Like any visual or digital tool you get out what you put in in terms of thought or experimenatation.


It sits at the boundary of the animated gif/cinemagraphhttp://www.tripwiremagazine.com/2011/07/cinemagraphs.html and the video clip. I think Vine has a great potential to develop creative and valuable learning resources, that analyse the unseen moment, comment, demonstrate creativity, and generate fun.  Muybridge would have loved it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Muybridge_Buffalo_galloping.gif

Create "Hand Drawn" animations on the iPad

Create "Hand Drawn" animations on the iPad | Video for Learning | Scoop.it


If you are a fan of the animated "hand drawn" videos that have been been made popular by the RSA then you may be interested in VideoScribe HD.


By selecting elements such as  icons arrows and backgrounds from the libraries provded, it is a relatively straightforward process to storyboard these videos, after which the  Videoscribe app  automatically creates a video sequence 'drawn' by an animated hand.  


I think there is a lot of potential for educators and students to come up with some innovative and creative results. The only downside might be if they become too ubiquitous and people become indiffrent to the format


Get VideoScribe HD on the Apple App Store; £2.99. There is also a free online browser based version together with a paid-for Pro Desktop version available on the Sparkol Web page.

There are a growing number number of  of apps available for video-editing on the iPad, (and also a  the iPhone). This appears to be one of the most sophisticated.


I dont think we are anywhere near the end of the road yet, in terms of mobile video editing, but as it takes will be certainly worth keeping an eye in a research context, asking what are the benefits of mobile video editing, (if any) as opposed to desktop?
