– Note Taking Synced with a Video


filedesc is an awesome app that is synced with your Google apps account.  This site allows you to watch an internet video and take notes; these notes are recorded in time while it is playing.  After you watch the video your notes are saved in your Google Drive account for you to access at a later point.  The owner of the notes document can share their notes with another student or the teacher.

When you click on your notes file in your Google Drive list, you will need to open this file in, as it will not open in Google Drive.  Once your notes file is open again, you can click around your notes and your video will move to that exact position where it was playing when you first took your notes.

For the teacher, this could be a great benefit for a video being shown in class as a large group.  You could setup a file and share that file with a student who was absent that day.  They could watch the video and record their notes; you can keep them on track with the class by filing in the gaps they missed with points that would have discussed as a large group.

Teachers could also assign a video as a homework assignment to the class.  Each student would need to watch the video and take their notes while watching.  They would then share their note file with the teacher as a way of submitting their homework.  The next day in class, the teacher could do a short discussion or use that video information in the next part of their lesson.

Students could use as a way of reviewing what was shown in class if they didn’t get a chance to see the whole video or simply want to review was discussed.
