Thing #20 YouTube

Again, this was new and exciting when Learning 23 things started but now it is just part of the landscape. From embedding YouTube into blogs, portals, and social networking sites such as MySpace and Facebook libraries and Web 2.0ers have embraced YouTube. YouTube is so much part of the scene that it has topped the top Web 2.0 sites for much of 2008. It is not surprising that YouTube is also being used as a great way to deliver online learning.

Particularly good YouTube online videos relating to libraries as well as Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 are:

* A Librarian's 2.0 Manifesto

* The Machine is Us/ing Us

* Tim Berners Lee on the Semantic Web

For more YouTube Library 2.0 videos, see the VALA Facebook page.
