Dragontape is another example of a great web site, packaging their services as an app for mobile devices. In short on the web site and on the app you can mix together You Tube videos. It is a simple case of searching within the app for the videos that students want to use to share information from then dragging them onto the time line in the appropriate sequence. What is more, each You Tube video can be ‘edited’ so that when the Dragontape mix version is played, only the desired segments from each video are played.
The website variant has more functionality, but the drag and drop, edit and save facilities on the app mean that students can research a topic, create a mix tape and save it. Once on a computer the mix tape shows up on the website variant and from there the video can be embedded into the appropriate web site for sharing. This facility makes Dragontape a great tool for enabling students to pull together several sources of information into one.
