May 10, 2013 - Annotating with VideoNotes

Hello Everyone,

Recently there has been a lot of discussion about ‘flipping the classroom’ and having students watch videos at home and complete homework (read: practice their skills) in class with the teacher’s assistance and guidance.  One challenge however to this new trend in education has been watching the video and preparing questions or writing the summary.

Videonotes ( however is a fun new tool that allows you view a video and take notes simultaneously.  When you visit the website and log in with your Google Cloud account, you can load any YouTube video on the left side of the screen and Videonotes supplies a notepad on the right side for quick note taking.  Additionally, once you have completed your writing, you can click on previous lines in the notes you’ve made, and the video will jump to that point; linking your thoughts and the images which occurred together.

Give it a try, and I’m sure you will be hooked!
Have a great weekend!
