Veezyon: Trusted Video Content for Educators
A couple of weeks ago I received an email telling me about a site that offered up video content from the likes of the University of California that combined trusted video content with a sort of social media twist. And to be honest it has taken me quite some time to really dig into their site to really see what they had to offer. I liked it!
The videos that Veezyon offers are indeed trustworthy as they come straight from content partners that are notorious for being solid research institutions, which means that a lot of the videos that hit on the site are some of the more cutting edge and relevant videos out there. The chances of finding something that taps into your curriculum is pretty good too since they cover topics in the Health, Arts, Public Affairs and Business fields.
Something I also found to be a nice touch was their use of social features such as bookmarking, note taking, commenting and sharing, which makes it fit in nicely with the other Web 2.0 sites that we find so incredibly community friendly and useful.
Since they are new to the game and still in beta, I can imagine that once their user base really kicks in, and new videos keep being added it will be an incredible community resource, as it already shows a lot of promise. You can check out their site at Veezyon.com
