Laptop Winner & Upload Fixes

I'm pleased to announce the April TeacherTube Laptop Contest winner for April is member marcbarcelona! The May contest is in full swing, so sign up today! If you are a member already, then increase your chances by uploading videos and using the invite friends feature!

Some of you have notified us that it's hard to tell when a videos is actually uploading. I know...I couldn't tell either and recently realized my last video was up there three times. When I thought the site had timed out, I just started uploading again but the video had actually uploaded and I didn't know it. Oops! So to help us out, Adam has added an "uploading" notification icon and page and a page notifying of successful uploading. Please let us know if this helps or not.

New Channels and Forum Available

Recently TeacherTube made four new channels to assist members in more specifically designating videos for audiences. Now when uploading a video, members can select channels for Elementary, Middle School, High School, or College/University. This will assist visitors and members when searching videos for instructional level. You can still select up to three channels, so for example if you upload a video on reading instruction for K-2, you could select both Reading and Elementary channels.

Also, now members have a forum for discussing TeacherTube questions, tips, problems, etc. It's located in the TeacherTube group. You must join the group to make posts or comments. To start a new topic, enter your topic into the Add New Topic window and click Add Topic. To comment on a previously posted topic, click on the Topic from the main group page and then enter your comments in the Add New Topic window on the topic page. (Maybe that needs to be worded as Add New Comment here instead of Add New Topic. I'll see if we can get that changed.) So please join the group and post your hints, tips, questions, comments, problems, etc.
