The YouTube Editor is not the most powerful editor you will ever use. However, it is free, and it includes all the basic editing tools you need to make a professional looking video. It is also an online tool, so you can use it anywhere you have an internet connection, and on any computer that you have access to.
My note: The author forgets to mention that the editor exists now also as an app for mobile devices, thus competing with other “free” mobile apps for video editing such as Splice, iMovie etc.
It can be a great addition to “spice up” videos posted on Instagram, Tweeter and other social media, besides YouTube.
VideoNotes (http://www.videonot.es/) is a free web tool that allows students to take notes on a video they are watching. The notes are synchronized with the video being watched. The good thing about VideoNotes is that it is integrated into Google Drive which means that students will be able to save their notes directly to their Drive account and access, edit, and work on them anytime they want. All the notes are time-stamped.
You will also see that there have been some changes to this version from the previous version. Just use your StarID to login, all you existing videos will be available in the site. There are a few new features in this version of Mediaspace. I have also updated the getting started document that I originally distributed to make adjustments for the new version. Once we are confident that you have made the transition to the new version, we will start broadening the use to other campuses and to faculty / staff use. Expect more announcements to come over the next couple weeks.
Direct links to videos can now be used. The steps to follow
Click on your Video title from your My Media listing
Click on the Action button (below the video player box, to the right)
Select “+ Publish”
Chance the privacy settings to “Unlisted”
Click on the “Share” button
Copy link and send out.
Embedding can use an Iframe or the standard legacy embed.
The embedding feature will now have the necessary security measures in place so that the D2L mixed content issues will not be present.
Downloading a copy of the video
You can now download a copy of the video from MediaSpace. If you are the owner of the video, when you select the “Edit” screen for the video, the player will have a “Download” option in the middle of the screen. This will allow an MPEG moving file to be downloaded to your workstation. This is only available in the “Edit” screen player, so only the owner of the video will have the ability to download it from MediaSpace.

I just got a request from a student from School of Education SOE). She has an issue, which pops up rather frequently with pre-service teachers from SOE. When she videotapes in the classroom, she is supposed to obtain permission for the video recording. In her case, one of the student wanted to be blurred out.
Here is a short YouTube video, which guides you through the iMovie process. The same is for Final Cut Pro:
