Panorama photos are great fun for students to take. The app used to take the picture below is an android app called 360. One good thing about it is that it provides an easy way to upload, embed and share your panoramas and it also enables you to mark its exact location on a Google map.
Since this is the first post on this blog, let's start with something to enhance your blog.
Here's how to get a video from your phone or tablet and put it on this page. In this example I'm using a Samsung S3, but most android gadgets will be virtually the same.
1. Video something!
2. Find your video in the album and touch the Share icon.
3. Select YouTube from your share options.
[Note: you can upload video to direct to this page from Dropbox or embed it with a link from Google Drive, but if you want the video to stream - rather than download slowly - then you need to use YouTube.]
4. You will then be asked to give your video a title. Remember to also set the privacy to 'Unlisted' for school things. (This means that it will not appear in public searches.)
5. Go to YouTube. Find your video in your uploads and then click on it to play it.
6. When your video plays, look down below for the link to 'Share' it. Copy that link.
7. Log in to your class blog or webpage and find the YouTube button.
8. Drag the button onto your page where you want to see the video. A default video will appear but when you click on it you will get a dialogue box for you to paste in the link to your video.
9. After pasting in your youtube link, your video should now appear on the page, like my one below. Try it out!
