VideoNot.es

VideoNot.es

This site allows you to take notes while watching a video from a supported source (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.).  VideoNot.es automatically adds a timestamp from the video to your notes so that you can easily go back to the part of the video where you took the notes.  Just click the timestamp and the video player will jump to that spot in the video.  When you’re done you can copy/paste the notes to an actual Google Doc, or even share the timestamp-infused notes the same way you’d share any document from your Google Drive.

Moving to Google Apps

Moving to Google Apps

In the early months of 2013, I made a daring move at my school, I made the move to Google Apps for Education.  It proved to be a very big change for the staff and faculty; a change that we are still working through today (about one and a half year later).  However, the change was a beneficial and necessary one.  Here is our story.
