Really 197 channels for learning? Well, there are many, but if you're like me, you're building a subscription list for your content areas and starting to curate (and perhaps create) some channels. Building a good YouTube stream is becoming part of curation and PLN building - so here's a great place to start.
Yet another reason to use YouTube. PBS Math Club has a Youtube channel with topics such as "Adding Negative Numbers: Mean Girls and Darth Vader" and What is an integer?" It is important to give teachers access to YouTube even if you block it from student use. Think of it as free cable where you determine the time for everything to be shown.
If you want to record your Google hangouts and post to your YouTube channel, you need to get started with "Hangouts on Air." HEre's the page to get you started. Note that Google plus isn't available for Apps for education so you'll need to use your personal or another gmail account with a Google plus profile if you want to record and share your class hangouts.
There's a new "cable tv" in town... YouTube.
That's right. YouTube may be launching paid premium channels this week. It will be quite interesting to see what happens if a video goes viral behind a paywall and if the free-for-all online video network will disenfranchise its netizens or if youth will take their game elsewhere.
Of course, YouTube must continue to monetize and make development of content worth it for their content creators, but it will be interesting to see what happens, particularly with new networks like Vine cropping up around sharing video.
This organization has created a YouTube channel called "Cyber Seniors corner" - film your grandparents and their wisdom and share it with this site to have it posted on YouTube. What a great idea to help grandparent's share their legacy. You're preserving this for your children and children's children and beyond.
TED-Ed now has a new way to flip lessons. Now in beta at ed.ted.com you can redo lessons or create lessons from scratch using TED or any youtube video. The nice thing is that you can see who has completed lessons. These videos give you tours and information. Time to test this. Yet another reason to unblock youtube and make peace.
New video website creation website from Richard Byrne 's website. I wonder how many schools will create video repositories using this site. It could also be a good way to have video portfolios made from a YouTube channel for a student.
If you use Google apps for education you now have access to YouTube for schools. This strips out comments and related videos. While not all videos are ported over, this is a solution for those overly restricted schools.

Did you know that youtube users are going to be required to connect to their google account?
Some cool videos. (I wish they were embedded) but still, links to a lot of the best videos are here.
Really nice post on Randy's Tech Tactics about the many great lists of youtube videos for education and also a tutorial on how to embed youtube videos into Powerpoint. Hey, Randy, thank you for taking the time to put this together -- great blog post to share from Randy Doughman!
This is called deep linking and allows you to link to the exact minute and second of a youtube clip.
Many people have not read the Youtube Community Guidelines. You should report any videos that break these rules to youtube - everyone should have a youtube account and be able to do this. Today, a student had a bad video linked to hers -- I had to go to another place to report the other video but you can do this!
"Don't Cross the Line
Here are some common-sense rules that will help you steer clear of trouble:
* YouTube is not for pornography or sexually explicit content. If this describes your video, even if it's a video of yourself, don't post it on YouTube. Also, be advised that we work closely with law enforcement and we report child exploitation. Please read our Safety Tips and stay safe on YouTube.
* Don't post videos showing bad stuff like animal abuse, drug abuse, under-age drinking and smoking, or bomb making.
* Graphic or gratuitous violence is not allowed. If your video shows someone being physically hurt, attacked, or humiliated, don't post it.
* YouTube is not a shock site. Don't post gross-out videos of accidents, dead bodies or similar things intended to shock or disgust.
* Respect copyright. Only upload videos that you made or that you are authorized to use. This means don't upload videos you didn't make, or use content in your videos that someone else owns the copyright to, such as music tracks, snippets of copyrighted programs, or videos made by other users, without necessary authorizations. Read our Copyright Tips for more information.
* We encourage free speech and defend everyone's right to express unpopular points of view. But we don't permit hate speech (speech which attacks or demeans a group based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, and sexual orientation/gender identity).

The new viral hit - beware how you act in public it could end up on youtube. Losing your temper could just become a huge embarrssment as it has for this woman who missed her flight in Hong Kong. No place for hysteria to hide any more. (Interestingly, it explains why one of my students turned to the other this morning and said, "Don't go Hong Kong on me, man." Ah - in 4 days. This says a lot about how quickly things move.)
Crying over this beautiful video where Paul Potts was discovered in the Britain's got talent search of 2007. Wow!
