Method #6 Movie Tubes

I have explored YouTube before but had not seen TeacherTube. I am under the impression that I could trust what was on teacher tube because of the educational aspect where as YouTube is a free for all of expression by anyone. I do like the layout of YouTube better, it appears more "user friendly". Since National Library Card Sign Up Month just ended, I chose the YouTube video Scott Township Public Library - National Library Card Sign-up Month at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwn94jqgmVU. I did try to embed the video into my blog but nothing worked, including asking two of my co-workers if they knew how to do it. We all pressed the same buttons and tried the same things and nothing worked. Very frustrating. I would like to do more promotions of the library programs and services using YouTube but I still need a lot more understanding of how to use this medium and also more time, which I just don't have right now. I will keep an eye out for a volunteer or a student who might be able to assist us with this project. This would also be an important addition to virtual branch libraries, which we hope to have some day.
