I love meeting technology integrators from various parts of the country. Today I was able to spend some time with some incredible educators at PETE&C. It is through these dedicated educators that I learn so much!
My new friend Anne told me about a site called View Pure, which allows you to watch YouTube videos without all of the junk, meaning without comments, suggestions, and other stuff. She said that it was a great way of bypassing a filter to watch only the requested YouTube video.
How do you use it? There are two basic ways. Copy and paste the YouTube URL to ViewPure. Click Create and it generates a unique URL.
There is a "Purify" button that you can drag onto your bookmarks toolbar. When you visit your YouTube page, click the button and you will generate your ViewPure URL.
So put it on your website, share it through a tweet, and get your students watching!
