23rd Thing – You Tube

YouTube is probably the biggest and most well known of the online video sites. We are sure we probably don’t need to explain any more about YouTube, but just in case, read the entry in Wikipedia.

You’ll find everything from vintage Top of the Pops to extreme ironing. For a bizarre sock puppet take on library information literacy search for “Randy Weasel” or check out what we missed out in 25 Things:

There are more and more research orientated videos out there, for example, take a look at this PhD presentation:

Huddersfield’s own Rob Lycett has a poetry workshop & installation video on YouTube:

Step 1:
Go to YouTube and do some searching to see what is out there.

Step 2:
Blog about what you have found. Try placing the video inside your blog by copying and pasting the code in the embed box, you’ll find this below and to the right of the actual video clip.

Note: Videos, like music downloads are bandwidth hogs. It is recommended that you complete this exercise on the University network unless you have broadband at home.

    Great course, BTW…
