My initial thoughts about its application in the classroom:
- Well . . . sometimes the content of an entire video isn't really necessary for the lesson being taught. With VideoNot.es a teacher can "note" which portion(s) of the video are relevant to the lesson, share the VideoNot.es with the class, and students access those pertinent segments with a simple click.
- Or . . . maybe you want the students to show their personal level of comprehension over a given topic. They, too, can use VideoNot.es using their Chrome Book then share back with you.
I've provided an example of VideoNot.es. Click here to see it. (Click on the yellow highlighted time stamps and watch how the video reverts back to that particular segment).
There are several advantages to the app:
- the user can connect VideoNot.es to his or her Google Drive
- the user can "sign in" with their Google account which eliminates the whole log in process
- as stated earlier, notes are time stamped to correlate with the video segment point in which the notes were typed
- notes appear right beside the video
- users can access notes for review and click on any time stamp to be brought back to that segment of the video.
- notes can be exported to Evernote
- notes can be shared in the same process Google Drive items are shared
