Choose Your Own Adventure Project - Day 4

We wrapped up the last of the recording today and then students uploaded their videos from their folders on the network. This was a bit of an adventure due our lab being a wee bit...well, "quirky" (trying to keep it polite here ).

Materials and Equipment
1. Students' videos in their own folders on the network
2. Students should have their own YouTube channels - my students have these set up as part of our class. Each group needed to choose one members' channel to upload their videos to.

The Process
1. We booked our lab time and had the groups get together and start uploading their videos. They had selected one member's YouTube channel to upload to. The videos must be uploaded before they can be annotated/linked together.
2. One of the surprising challenges for my students was giving each of their videos a descriptive title. I showed first group finished how to upload and title their videos and instructed the three of them to assist their classmates as necessary.
3. Due to our lab's pathetic upload speeds, this was all we were able to accomplish in class. The next class will have us in the lab again, annotating all the videos together.

The Sharing
1. We will be sharing the final results in the next post, after all the annotation craziness is wrapped up. The students are all very keen to share their videos with each other and I can't wait to see their final products!

Please let me know if you have any questions or if you've tried this with your own students! Bye for now.
