Curate YouTube Playlists Into Free Online Video Courses with Konoz

Curate YouTube Playlists Into Free Online Video Courses with Konoz | Online Video Publishing |
Robin Good's insight:

Konoz is a web service which allows you to package and publish your own YouTube video playlists into free online learning courses.

It works like this: Once you are logged in into Konoz, you can input the URL of a YouTube playlist. Once you have done so, Konoz grabs the set of video URLs of the playlist and creates a custom page for your upcoming course, in which each video of the playlist is a lesson to be seen.

Konoz displays for each video its title and duration and connects them in a learning list where a visual indicator also displays what percentage of the whole course has been watched.

Finally Konoz provides curators of these free video courses with the opportunity to offer custom perks to their students, by offering extra features and bonuses in exchange for a money contribution. Curators can establish the bonuses and the value for each. 

Thus Konoz offers a very simple way for those who are either YouTube creators to collect relevant videos or screencasts into playlists and then to package them into free online video courses, while providing also a stimulating option to reward their work.

Simple but interesting solution. Very easy to use. 7/10

Free to use.

Al mejor estilo MOOC (Massive Online Open Course) Yotube publica cursos online.


wanderingsalsero's curator insight, May 31, 2013 10:27 PM

I WILL be taking this.  Sounds like a great idea.  I'm convinced that a lot of the stuff the 'gurus' put in their courses (the ones they charge for) is freely available somewhere.  In the case of YouTube, I know for a fact that they publish a LOT of good stuff that's totally free....e.g. the YouTube Creators Playbook (that I found over a year ago).


I am also convinced that understand just this one simple, well-known tool of YouTube is (all by itself) a highly marketable skill.  I'll bet if you walked into 10 businesses and just said, "Hi, my name is Art Williams.  I'm a YouTube consultant.  Are you doing anything with YouTube to build your business?" it would lead to several people expressing interest.


I think the key to making that kind of prospecting work would be to have several different 'products' or services available.  Some people will need to be nurtured for a bit before they finally give you some real business....kinda like going into a Denny's and ordering an iced-tea first and then deciding that you really are hungry.

Low-Latency, Speedy, No-Frill Access To YouTube Video Clips with YouTube Feather

Robin Good: If you are frequently unable to see YouTube videos stream smoothly to your screen, either because your computer is starting to show its age or because your Internet connection is not that fast, this experimental opt-in feature from your YouTube may solve your problem.

Called YouTube Feather, this new feature allows you to access msny YouTube-hosted videos by severely limiting the features available on the page and optimizing the delivery of the video by drastically reducing the amount of data transferred.

"YouTube Feather removes the information panel, share button, most of the related videos, video responses, vote counts on each comment, the medium-size player option, like and dislike counts for the video, and the capability to add the video to a list."


You can try it out now by going to and clicking on "Join the Feather Beta" blue text.

You can also turn off the feature at any time by going back to the above URL and clicking on "Leave the Feather Beta".

You can provide feedback to YouTube about this experimental feature here:

N.B.: The Feather feature may not work on all videos.

YouTube Releases Face Blurring Tool To Protect Users Privacy and Anonimity When Needed

YouTube Releases Face Blurring Tool To Protect Users Privacy and Anonimity When Needed | Online Video Publishing |

Robin Good: YouTube has just released a "face-blurring" tool that can be utilized on any video uploaded to the platform.

"Whether you want to share sensitive protest footage without exposing the faces of the activists involved, or share the winning point in your 8-year-old’s basketball game without broadcasting the children’s faces to the world, our face blurring technology is a first step towards providing visual anonymity for video on YouTube..."

Here's how it works: "Blurring faces on YouTube is simple. Once you’ve chosen the video that you’d like to edit within our Video Enhancements tool, go to Additional Features and click the “Apply” button below Blur All Faces.

Before you publish, you will see a preview of what your video will look like with faces blurred. When you save the changes to your video, a new copy is created with the blurred faces.

You will then be given the option to delete the original video."

Access Over 150,000 Music Soundtracks With The New Audio Editing Features on YouTube

Robin Good: YouTube has released a new set of features for video-makers of all levels which allow you to replace your video's soundtrack for free with a song from the YouTube library of hundreds of thousands of audio tracks.

To try it out, go to your Video Manager, select Edit, select Enhancements, then select Audio.

From IBTimes: "In the latest update to the video-sharing site, YouTube is rolling out new audio editing tools that will make it easier for uploaders to layer several audio tracks on top of one another.

Prior to the update, YouTube offered an AudioSwap feature that let users replace a video's audio track with one of the company's thousands of licensed audio tracks.

The new update has catapulted YouTube's licensed track count to more than 150,000.

The update will also give YouTube uploaders the ability to adjust volume levels on each track .


Prior to the latest update, users could add licensed tracks to videos, but the audio levels could not be adjusted -- it would simply replace the video's audio track.

The latest audio editing tools will be rolled out over the next few days. To try them on the video's you've uploaded, go to "edit settings" from the video manager."


Lamonte Gates's curator insight, October 17, 2020 7:47 PM
Being able to add soundtracks to your own videos that you upload to youtube is amazing. Youtube has this feature so you can do just that for free. You have a large variety of different soundtracks to choose from.

I tested vibop and it's a useful tool to make quick enrichments to your videos: It's a pity that the themes are only available for the iphone app and not for the web app integrated in youtube (as expected) .

Regarding intro, editing & effects functionalities, they're both in the iphone and web app.

How To Brand Your New YouTube Profile | SocialMediaExaminer | Online Video Publishing |

Robin Good: Not everyone likes YouTube new interface facelift, but what counts, is how effective your YouTube presence is in helping you reach your audience and in be found, linked and discovered by new potential fans.

Casey Zeman at SocialMediaExaminer has some good, illustrated advice, to share.

Here my key takeaways:

"#1: Add Your Custom URLs in the Newly Placed Description Area

#2: Add Overlays to ALL of Your Videos

(Previous YouTube guidelines required you to promote your videos in order to take advantage of YouTube’s self-branded overlays. However, YouTube has changed that requirement. You don’t need to have a running and approved promotion for a specific video to take advantage of overlays.

Now you can simply create the promoted video, pause the campaign and still have the power of the branded overlay.)

#3: Prevent Other Ads from Showing on Your Video"

But there is more.

Upcoming: YouTube Video Player Introduces Storyboards and Timeline Thumbnailing

Amit Agarwal has a scoop on the next upcoming version of the YouTube video player. He writes:

"The next version of YouTube video player will have one very useful feature – you can hover your mouse to any point in the video, without actually moving the playhead, and the YouTube player will show you an image thumbnail of the video frame at the position.

Thus you can easily get a visual gist of the whole video while the clip is still buffering.

I recorded a screencast video and that should give you a better idea of this new feature."
