Videonot.es is a service that allows students to take notes that line up with a YouTube video. All the notes they type are automatically synchronized with the video. Later, they can just click on a line for the video to jump to the relevant part.
By clicking on the lines, the video will jump to the section where that note was taken from:
The synchronising of the notes can be switched on or off.
Videonot.es is an extension of Google Drive and can only be opened in Google Drive. That means that you will need a Google account to use this service. The app can be easily installed. Go to Videonot.es and click on “Connect with Google Drive”.
It’s best to see it at work. I have watched a video on the Spanish Civil War and took quite some notes on it. For this link to work for you, you’ll need two things: A Google Drive account and you need to have the Videonot.es extension connected, as per above.
Here is another example. I opened it up to students (and to the wider public, i.e. YOU). This is the first part of a documentary “China in Revolution” 1911 – 1949.
