One of my favourite “educational” videos at the moment comes from Common Craft who make these wonderful lo-tech videos involving paper, pen and a little DIY animation which is quite reminiscent of “Vision On“, the old BBC children’s programme from the 60’s and 70’s that featured Tony Hart.
So pull a chair up and watch how they explain the concept of social networking in plain english.
As you can see, I have discovered how to embed YouTube videos into an EduSpaces blog. To do this, use the following syntax:
Where “url” is the URL of the video you want to show, so in the above example it’s: http://www.youtube.com/v/6a_KF7TYKVc
Note: You then must enclose the “video:url” statement within the opening and closing double curly brackets, so it reads:
Have fun and enjoy.
