VideoNot.es is a great website that addresses the increased use of videos to deliver instruction. Students use VideoNot.es to watch videos and take notes simultaneously.
Students can login to the site using their DASD Google accounts. (This will allow their notes to save automatically to their Google Drive.)
Half of the screen contains the video that the students are watching. The other half of the screen is a blank area where students can take notes while the video plays. What is unique about this method of note taking is that the students’ notes are synchronized with the video. If they see something that they’d like to write down at 1:40 in the video, the note will be tied to 1:40. If the student clicks on that note later, the video will auto-magically jump to that spot.
Because the video notes are saved to a student’s Google Drive, it will be easy for him or her to share the video with you or with other students later.
