Synchtube: Watch YouTube Videos Collaboratively
I stumbled across this resource, and I'm glad I did! Many times I want to show a video with my class, but I don't want my students to see all of the unrelated information. While Quietube is good for this, it does not allow you to collaborate or discuss the video. Synchtube removes the unrelated information AND it provides a chat platform where you can collaborate around the video. I think it could be a great resource IF youtube is not blocked in your district. Also, there are no sign ins required to use the service, so it is very "student friendly." Let me know what you think or if you have used it!
