Question Your YouTube Viewers

I saw a tweet the other day that mentioned YouTube was testing out a feature that would let you ask questions of your views throughout the video. I think that is a pretty great feature for educators. Apparently, you could go to your analytics page to get the answers. Here is where you can turn on the feature or turn it off.

That is it. Sorry no movie that I could find. But, for those of us that use screen casting regularly in class, it could be a very cool feature.

Today's Student?

I love this video. Not just because it does such a great job of copying Lee LeFever's work, but because I want this to be my student. I want my students to leave my class armed with this type of knowledge and know-how.

Absolutely love it!

Game Making with Construct 2

Anyone who is teaching a programming, Web Multimedia, or Gaming course might want to check out Construct 2 from Scirra. There are three down-loadable versions (one is free). Check out the info video below.

Looks promising. There are multiple tutorials to get started and an arcade to test out games. I also like that you can publish to multiple platforms such as iOS, Android, and others. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
