Flipping tip: edmodo video


“It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else.” - Erma Bombeck

Edmodo is an online social learning network. It’s a bit like Facebook but secure! Teachers, students, and parents can connect, collaborate, and share content without worry. Teachers can post grades, assignments, and quizzes too but we are going to focus attention on sharing videos.




“There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch” - Milton Friedman

It seems Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim found a “free lunch” when they founded youtube.com. As of 11:00 AM 1/10/2013 my youtube account contains 562 videos with 53,067 views and I have not seen one dime of revenue. At least not from youtube. 

New YouTube app for iPad and iPhone 5; watching TV on your iPad


You may recall that when iOS 6 came out, it lacked two apps that had been part of iOS from the beginning: Google's Maps and YouTube. Google quickly came out with a YouTube iPhone app to replace the one that went missing, but it received a lot of criticism.

Google releases official YouTube app for iPhone


iOS 6 should be out soon, and ahead of its arrival Google has released their official app for YouTube. That's because iOS 6 will no longer have a built-in YouTube app. This initial offering is tailored for the iPhone and iPod touch, and there's not yet a version tailored for the iPad. I like it better than the original app because it uses a different category structure. But I still don't see that there's a way to watch YouTube's movies. Also, i doesn't appear to support AirPlay. In general, user ratings are giving it high marks.

YouTube Abandoning the iPhone Ship?


In an article in the upcoming issue of iPhone Life magazine, the author discusses the decision developers have to make as to whether their app should be native to the iPhone or Web-based.  It seems there are definite advantages to having a Web app since it becomes global rather than specific to a platform. Well, it seems YouTube has made the decision to go global.
