Watchily - Search Multiple Video Providers With One Click

Update November 22, 2019: This resource is no longer online. 

If you've ever been searching for a movie or television show that you want to show in school or watch at home, but you have been frustrated by performing the same search on multiple sites, try Watchily next time.

Watchily is a search engine that pulls results from popular movie and television show providers. Enter your search in Watchily and get results from Hulu, Netflix, Vudu, HBOGo, iTunes, Amazon, MaxGo, Comcast XFINITY, Redbox, and Showtime Anytime. Watchily results can be refined according to movie/ television content rating, price, duration of video, genre, and hosting service.

Applications for Education
Watchily is not going to change the way we teach or the way that students learn, but it could save you time the next time you're looking for a video that you want to use in your classroom.

Tiny Chat Launches Tiny Chat TV

As was first reported by Read Write Web, Tiny Chat has launched a new service called Tiny Chat TV. Tiny Chat TV is designed to be a competitor to U-Stream. Tiny Chat TV allows you to create your own channel for streaming video to the web. I signed up for the service and created my channel in a matter of minutes. While broadcasting viewers of the video can chat (anonymously or as registered users) in the text box directly under the video.

Applications for Education
Tiny Chat TV could be useful for broadcasting professional development workshops to world. Tiny Chat itself can be useful for creating back channel sessions during a presentation or workshop. The combination of broadcasting and back-channeling can bring in even more viewpoints and comments.
