I got an email from YouTube a few days ago asking if I was interested in YouTube’s Partnership Program. This program allows video makers the opportunity to place ads next to their videos and receive a share of the revenue.
I was surprised at this, so I visited my KenKen video, KenKen 4×4 Introduction and Strategy, and found out that it’s been watched over 13,000 times as of this date (mid-Dec 2010). That’s pretty cool for a math/puzzle video. It’s nice to see so many people interested in puzzles, especially one that is so math oriented. So I guess I’ll make some more vids showing how to use puzzles in and out of the classroom to improve logical and mathematical thinking.
I recently bought a Canon T2i dSLR camera, and one of its nicest features is the ability to record HD video. My plan is to use this camera to record vids showing classroom lessons and pedagogy. Since winter vacation is coming up, I’ll have some time to make progress on this idea. The dSLR is a big step up for me, and all the menus may take awhile to master, but the end result should be great. Here’s hoping to make some more vids with even larger viewership!
