Friday 5: Vlogs
Hi All –
This week’s theme comes as a suggestion by long time subscriber, James Lerman. If you’re not familiar with vlogging, don’t worry.... neither am I! Researching this week’s list has given me a start to understanding the concept which apparently is different than videopodcasting, aka vodcasting. In the processing of culling links, I joined a helpful and BUSY listserv via Yahoo!Groups (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/videoblogging/) and the owner, Jay Dedman immediately introduced to me to two other eduvloggers. I was impressed with the friendliness of these guys as the list boasts over 2000 subscribers. I asked them about the differences between videopodcasting and videoblogging. I received a few different answers ranging from a desire to disassociate themselves with a brand (as in podcasting) to no difference to the fact that videoblogs are video clips associated with a regular blog and podcasts are just videoclips fed through an RSS feed. Explore the following links and see for yourself!
Feel free to email me topics for future Friday 5 lists!

7) A Teacher’s Life: Video Blog Sample
I use Typepad for my blog and I discovered this week that videoclips are supported via another company called Videoegg. This is a test run for uploading a videoclip to my blog.
