YouTube is a free video sharing site where users can watch, comment and upload videos. For a concise overview of YouTube for learning and teaching it’s worth having a look at Educause’s excellent 7 things you should know series. They have a range of two-page summaries on new and emerging technologies. You can download the YouTube guide here

A useful feature of YouTube is the ability to embed videos into blogs. As an example, if I was teaching study skills I might want to provide a concise overview of mindmapping. A quick trip over to YouTube and a search on Tony Buzan brings up a 5 minute overview by the creator of mindmaps. To use this in my blog I just copy and paste the code provided by YouTube.

I have pasted the code from YouTube and pasted it into this blog entry.
