Enhance, Remix and Share Web Video

When creating training, I do not always have the time to create videos from scratch. Often, I'll find something similar to what I want on YouTube.com or Vimeo.com. Only problem, is I wish I could edit them.


The other day, I found a great video explaining the VLOOKUP function in Excel. The first part was great, but didn't need the end about relative referencing. Plus, there were some parts I felt the author skimmed over in explaining and my users really needed the extra info. To get what I wanted, I created a mashup using Mozilla Popcorn Maker.


Popcorn Maker allows you to bring in an online video (this works as long as the video remains posted as it is linked, not embedded) and add text, pop-ups, twitter feeds and more. Once posted, someone else can use your mashup as a basis for their own and add to it. To learn more, view and participate in the tutorial online or go to https://webmaker.org/en-US/tools/#popcorn-maker.
