Vine app Vine: a mobile service from Twitter let you capture and share short looping videos to share in tweets. Like Tweets, the brevity of videos on Vine (6 seconds or less) inspires creativity. Whilst the app is no longer in use the ‘vines’ can still be viewed.



TikTok allows users to create short music and lip-sync videos of 3 to 15 seconds and short looping videos of 3 to 60 seconds.


YouTube is a video sharing site on which you can upload, share and view videos. You can choose to make the videos you upload public (anyone can search for and watch), unlisted (only people who know the link to the video can view it) or private (only you and up to 50 other users whom you choose to invite by email to view it). A guide to how you can adjust these permissions can be found here.

There are now dedicated groups for education – The Teachers Channel where teachers can share how they are using video in the classroom and EDU which is a collection of educational videos that may be of interest to anyone.

As of January 2012, YouTube has reached 4 billion views per day. Every second one hour of video is uploaded. See what this looks like at onehourpersecond


Vimeo is another video sharing site and restricts content uploads to only those created by the user.

    Hi there Sue,

    How are you?

    I’m representing simpleshow. We have created an online video-making tool that allows users to create educational explainer videos in minutes, and for free.

    mysimpleshow transforms any text into an explainer video with graphics and voiceover in minutes.

    The tool is a great resource to be used inside or outside the classroom, both for teachers and students.
    We could provide you with content if you would like to share this with your community.

    You can check out our site, and examples of videos here:

    As follows a short mysimpleshow introduction video about our different type of accounts:

    You can also give it a go and create your own videos. Just choose a storyline and write the script, or upload your PowerPoint and mysimpleshow will create the video for you.

    I hope you’ll like it and find it useful, and hope to hear back!

    Many thanks and warmly,
