Veotag - add clickable text tags to video

Veotag "is a free service that lets you display clickable text, called "veotags," within an audio or video file. "

This enables viewers to quickly jump to specific events on your video without taking it back or forward. (upload videos from you hard drive [.mov .avi .wmv .mpg, flv, and .mp4])

Upload your video (from computer or the web) within the Veotag interface. Start playing the video and stop it anywhere to insert a veotag.

As you can see on the example on the left the movie (which has now been converted to a flash movie file) is playing while it moves through the text links that have been "tagged."

Use in the classroom....
Great tool to capture student presentations. Once the student has been videotaped they can then tag hilights throughout their presentation. Publish it and it can be presented on a school Intranet or as part of a portfolio.

Develop video class lectures for you students and load onto the school Intranet. Use it for professional development. Great tool....give it a try.
