Google Video and YouTube

What is the tool? How does it work? What's special about it?

We prefer Google Video to YouTube when uploading video to display on the blog. With Google Video you can choose a "unlisted" option so that it is not displayed for others to see in Google Video. Also there is not an "easy access" link for the kids to leave the blog and go to google video.

How might this tool be useful to students & teachers?

Teachers and students can upload a flip video straight to Google Video without reformatting the original video. Also the privacy issue benefits both students and teachers - easy transfer to blog...

What else do we want to know about this tool?

Why do some videos upload and others don't? Is it a formatting problem (they were all Quicktime)? We haven't figured that out yet...
