Media on the iPad

Why You Tube in Education? Check out this video...
Video podcast (sometimes shortened to vodcast or less commonly vidcast) is a term used for the online delivery of video on demand video clip content via Atom or RSS enclosures. The term is an evolution specialized for video, coming from the generally audio-based podcast and referring to the distribution of video where the RSS feed is used as a non-linear TV channel to which consumers can subscribe using a PC, TV, set-top box, media center or mobile multimedia device. Web television series are often distributed as video podcasts.

This video was created by a former iPad class student who researched the uses of iPads as an online learning tool. It gives us an excellent idea of not only how to create a valuable Animoto video, but the amazing tools the iPad offers us as educators.
