Tech Tuesday: VideoNotes

I have been using, a web application that lets you watch YouTube videos and take notes side-by-side in a Google Doc. We all remember more of what we see, hear, and do than if we do any of those activities alone, so why not use to have students interact with the material by watching the video and answering questions in a document as they go? Perhaps they still have questions after they have watched the video. They can share it with you so you know which concepts need to be addressed later. These are only two of the many possible applications of this tool.

Below is a video I made showing you how to use If you would like to try out the service for yourself, copy this url [], head over to, and watch it there. (You will have to authorize the site to access your Google Drive before it will work.)

Happy note-taking!
