Taking Notes with YouTube

We see this great video that connects to the curriculum, but we want students to do a little more than just watch it. We could go old skool and have the students grap a pen and paper, but that poses its own problems when the content is digital.

Videonot.es offers a great cloud based solution to the problem of taking notes from YouTube videos. Videonot.es integrates beautifully with Google Drive. Note only are the notes saved to Drive but they are time stamped to the YouTube video. Clicking on a time stamp will take you to the section of the video in which the note was taken.

Videonot.es could be the perfect flip tool in a 1-1 environment. All the students notes from the YouTube video remain safely in Google Drive for later retrieval.
