We’re down to the final days of the school year at my school, and many students and teachers have turned their thoughts to assessment. Final exams. Final projects. End-of-course assessments. Quick review sessions.

January, 2015

Becky Roehrs's insight:

YouTube's video editor does an excellent job of syncing your transcript (which can just be a text file) with your video. On the otherhand, cutting bits out of your video is not easy, with the YouTube video editor. I would like to try some of the suggestions in this article, such as adding annotations.

6 Tips For Closed Captioning eLearning Courses

6 Tips For Closed Captioning eLearning Courses | Education and Tech Tools | Scoop.it

Closed captioning eLearning courses gives you the power to deliver effective and meaningful learning experiences to those who may be deaf or hearing-impaired.

Becky Roehrs's insight:

Here's step-by-step instructions for captioning with YouTube. Here's my tips, for captioning:

  • I write my video scripts in Windows Notepad (to create a txt file),
  • Record my video (using Snagit),
  • Rewrite the script to match the actual video recording,
  • Upload the video to YouTube,
  • Then upload my rewritten script to YouTube. I don't try to edit the uploaded script in YouTube anymore-it's much easier to rewrite it before uploading it!
  • BIG TIP: Don't bother with YouTube's automatically created transcript, it's usually not very good...I delete the "automatic" transcript, so folks don't accidentally find it, so they use mine instead.


YouTube does an excellent job of syncing your captions to your video, if you already have the script written to match what you actually said...

From Edudemic: 10 Most Popular Teaching Tools Used This Year

From Edudemic: 10 Most Popular Teaching Tools Used This Year | Education and Tech Tools | Scoop.it
Last year, Edudemic published a list of the most essential and popular educational tools used in modern classrooms across the globe.
Becky Roehrs's insight:

Who are the top 5?


1. Google Apps for Education: 40 million students/educators can't be wrong-and it has Google Docs and no ads..


2. Twitter: It's become a place for growing a personal learning network (PLN) among educators and is used in the classroom as well.


3. YouTube: With tons of channels that can help educators, it's the place both educators and students love.


4. Edmodo, like Google Apps for Education, has over 40 million members.  It's free and has many options to provide content and assessments for students.


5. Remind made it into the top 5. “Think of it as a combo of sticky note and class newsletter for the digital age,” writes nprED reviewer Elissa Nadworny. “Remind allows teachers to send messages — via email, cellphone, iPad or Android device — to an entire class with the push of a button.”
