Embedding video makes wiki hosted classroom web site come to life

Posted in classroom web site, multimedia, Web 2.0 by Mark Barnes on January 22, 2010

One of  the best parts of a good wiki-hosted classroom web site is the ability to embed video. Any classroom teacher can find video on YouTube, TeacherTube or other places that is relevant to the subject matter.

The wiki classroom web site allows the administrator to not just link to video but to actually embed the video directly into web pages, like this one on my classroom web site. While working on a drama unit, built around Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol,  I found this awesome slide show on the industrial revolution. The T-Rex music was a powerful addition for this enlightening video.

If you didn’t click the above link to see the video embedded on my classroom web site, here’s what it looks like.
