Making it legit: is an underutilized online resource that saves projects automatically to your Google Drive.  Using this resources is easy as pie. First, connect your Google Drive account and import a useful YouTube video.  Then, start taking notes on the right side of the page.  Each time you write a note it is time stamped to your video. So, for example, if you have a multistep set of instructions your viewer can click on which ever step they want to watch and will take them directly to that part of the video.

This means that viewers need only watch the parts of videos they need to watch. This saves your viewers time and frustration.

This tool can be used by everyone from session presenters (as follow up to your presentation or to flip your session and give background information prior to your session) to flipped classroom educators (introducing content at home so classroom time can be used to work on the work).

Put this resource in the hands of your students to make their video tutorials MORE helpful!
