Using and citing video from Google Video in your Student Movies.

Julie and I have been creating movies to teach our students about the various skills needed for our flat classroom project. (Which ends Tuesday.) These are quick videos so everything isn't perfect, but I discovered how to “rip” and use video from Google video in Windows Movie Maker files and created a tutorial for my students. I thought you'd like a copy.

The Citing Video Conundrum
Also, I've got a video about how to cite video. If you take the time to watch, you will see that there are many issues with citing video, one of which is that MLA has yet to determine how exactly to cite the wealth of electronic resources out there.

If you know how to cite video, please help me.
If you are a citing expert, I hope you'll see what I'm teaching and correct my errors because there is not a lot of good information about citing video used from Google video or Youtube. Please help me, if you are a excited about citing! (If you'd like to make your own video to correct my mistakes, I'll embed that in the flat classroom project.)

Hi Vikki
Thanks for such a helpful guide; it was funny to hear your voice, after just seeing your writing!

Also, congratulations on the two nominations you’ve had for your blog & the wiki.

Once again, thank you for your hard work. You once again have saved me some time and energy, as we are beginning a video project that I needed to create a tutorial about how to edit video. I no longer need to do that.

Since we subscribe to NoodleBib for our students to create MLA formatted citations, I ran a few videos through to get the general format of the citation. Here they are:

For a Video without an Interview:
Author. Title. YearofPublications. Sponsoring Organization. DistributorLast Accessed Date bracketed by less than and greater than symbols.

Fisch, Karl. Vision 2020. 2006. Google. 11 Dec. 2006

For a Video with an Interview:
Interviewee. Interviewer. Title . YearofPublication. 2006. Distributor. DateLastChanged. Originator. Last Accessed Date URL bracketed by less than and greater than symbols.
Gates, Bill. Interview with Charlie Rose. Charlie Rose – An Hour With Bill Gates. 2006. 2006. 17 Nov. 2006., NY. 11 Dec. 2006

Due to the nature of comments, you need put the URL inside the same tags markers that you would use for HTML markup.
