Discovery 12 – Web Video

September 21, 2009 at 11:13 am Leave a comment


Within the few years online video hosting sites have exploded allowing users to easily to upload and share videos on the web. Among all the web 2.0 players in this area, YouTube is currently top dog, allowing users not only to upload their own video content easily, but also embed clips into their own sites/blogs easily.

Do some searching around YouTube yourself and see what the site has to offer. You’ll find everything from 1970s comedy,  1980s TV commercials, pseudo documentaries and the latest movie trailers. Of course, like any free site you’ll also find a lot stuff not worth watching too. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t explore and see for yourself what the site has too offer.  


Bored in the library one day? Maybe try…

Take a look at the library YouTube videos highlighted at Tame the Web for more inspiration.

Some other online video sites to explore: 


Explore YouTube & find a video worth adding as an entry in your blog.  Try to embed the video in your blog and create a blog post about your experience.
What did you like or dislike about the site and why did you choose the video that you did?
Can you see any features or components of the site that might be interesting if they were applied to library websites?

Feeling brave? Make your own video and upload it to YouTube or Google Video. Promote a library program or introduce your library to the community or something else. If you do, be sure to embed it in your blog.
