Can you ever share too much?

My mother loves to see my kids read.  There is one small issue.  She lives in New Orleans.  I could use one of the many streaming apps but that requires Grandma to be online when the kids are reading.  Not exactly easy to pull off.

There is this new iOS app that we tried out.  I hit record and once Aidan finished reading the clip was uploaded to youtube.  My mom could then click on the video anytime she wanted.

I can see a million ways to use this app in the classroom.

(Uploading video may take some time.  Be patient!)

How the app works:
*You will need a gmail/youtube account.

Open the Capture app.  (You will need to download the app from the app store. Search for Youtube Capture under the iPhone section.)



Frame your shot.  Make sure you can see everything you want to record before you click the red button.  Avoid moving the iPad while recording

Click on the timer on the right side of the screen to stop the recording.  It may take considerable time to upload videos longer than five minutes.


Add a title and a description to the video you just recorded.  The click the Upload button.


Wait until the video is completely uploaded to youtube before you share it.


Click on the video you want to share.  There are a few optional locations to share the video to.
