Robin Good's curator insight, February 26, 2013 11:55 AM



"Henshaws College has launched an accessible version of YouTube, which was funded by Jisc through Jisc Advance. It allows people with learning difficulties and disabilities to use this mainstream technology independently.


ACCESS: YouTube simplifies the standard You Tube site making it easier to search and play videos, and allows the use of assistive technologies. It is now publicly available so everyone can benefit from this accessible method."

Tools for assessibility are always welcome. This service provides a way for instructors to use YouTube video and still remain 508 compliant.

Video Curation: Auto-Create YouTube Video Playlists with Integrated Thumbnails

Video Curation: Auto-Create YouTube Video Playlists with Integrated Thumbnails | Tips, Tricks and Technology How To's | Scoop.it

Robin Good: YouTube has released new functionality that allows you to create an embeddable video playlist on any topic, or user ID while integrating thumbnails for all clips included.

 

Here is an example. Go to: http://www.youtube.com/embed/?listType=user_uploads&list=RobinGood&showinfo=1 and see an automatically created playlist of all my uploaded video clips.

 

And if you pass also the parameter, "showinfo=1", when creating the player, the list of video thumbnails will be permanently visible by clicking in the playlist icon appearing on the bottom right of the YouTube player.

 

If you want to embed such a playlist use this syntax:
 

**<iframe width="560" height="315"
src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/?listType=user_uploads&amp;list=RobinGood&amp;showinfo=1" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>***

 

and replace "RobinGood" with any YouTube user id.

 

Alternatively, replace listType=user with listType=search or listType=user_uploads to get specific terms searched and aggregated or to showcase all the uploads of a certain YouTube user.

 

Here is another example: http://www.youtube.com/embed/?listType=search&amp;list=news%20curation&amp;showinfo=1&nbsp;- here I have changed the listType to "search" and have used as query terms "news curation". Check the result.
