    Hairdressing Video

    July 26th, 2010

    If you are learning about hairdressing, reading about it is okay, but doesn’t really show how to do things even with nice colour pictures. Video is a much better way to reflect on a process, to prepare for a process or learn about a new process.

    Worcester College of Tech and Hairdressing Training have placed a series of short, useful videos on different hair cutting techniques on YouTube.

    See more videos.

    Hairdressing Training is run by Mimas (http://www.mimas.ac.uk). It provides you with a range of resources to help with your teaching. These include a suite of web resources with photographic step by step guides combined with lessons and handy tips and techniques, suiting a variety of learning styles. Hairdressing Training is also available via mobile devices.

    Kryten on Copyright and YouTube


    Clean and tidy

    May 3rd, 2010

    One of the annoyances of using YouTube in the classroom is the “untidy” YouTube interface. It has got better recently, but one annoyance remains, the comments.

    For some reason many people who comment on YouTube videos seem to have to use profanities or make weird or rude comments.

    As a result when you are showing a YouTube video in a classroom or at a conference, people get distracted by the comments and miss the video.

    I did mention QuietTube in a post last week, I was recommended by Ellen to have a look at SafeShareTV.

    Not only does SafeShareTV remove distracting and offensive elements around YouTube videos, but it also allows you to crop videos before sharing them.

    A neat little idea to sending YouTube links by e-mail, or posting links in the VLE.

    It helps avoid some of the distractions that the main YouTube sites offer and is in some ways better and easier than trying to embed the YouTube video.

    Another way of showing your videos in the classroom is to use the channel and find the videos that way rather than using the direct URL.

    As you can see you also avoid the unecessary comments and distractions, but stil not as clean as SafeShare.


    Tools for YouTube

    April 28th, 2010

    YouTube has some great content, the tools described in this video will make it much easier to use YouTube in the classroom.

    QuietTube – To watch web videos without the comments and stuff, just drag the button below to your browser’s bookmarks bar. On any of the supported video pages, click the bookmark button to watch in peace.

    Tube Chop – TubeChop allows you to easily chop a funny or interesting section from any YouTube video and share it.

    The final tool in the video, Keep Vid isn’t to be recommended as I explain in this blog post.
