3 video annotation options

Educational Technology1 Comment

In one of our projects we have been wanting to tag various places within videos. Here area few of the options that emerged.

1. You can within Youtube, link to a specific time within a YouTube video:

Thanks to RMIT’s Youtube communities expert Blair Wilde for this last solution.
2. Tubechop is a service that helps you cut out sections in YouTube videos. It makes available a link and embed code for the new section of video you have created.

3. Video notes is an open source platform that allows you to timestamp notes against a YouTube video. All the notes you type are automatically synchronised with the video. Later you can just click on a line for the video to jump to the relevant part.

Thanks for these tools Howard. I think a zero in your list (the one before 1) should be Youtube’s annotation tools https://www.youtube.com/yt/playbook/annotations.html mainly because it’s important to know the range of functionality in such a powerful and influential platform – possibly saving us some folly in learning 3rd party tools that turn out to have limited life (or not)..
