[My] EID100 You[tube] Playlist


Mission: Use YouTube to create a public playlist of amazing videos. The videos must be related to one of the EID100 weekly topics and should be engaging, accurate, and educational. There should be atleast 5 videos in you playlist. Embed the playlist in your blog and explain the thought process involved with curating your set of videos.

According to Google, to curate, is to;

  • select, organize, and present (online content, merchandise, information, etc.), typically using professional or expert knowledge.
  • eg. "Nearly every major news organization is using Twitter’s new lists feature to curate tweets about the earthquake"
content curation

For this module, I have created a channel within my Youtube account entitled “EID100”. In this channel, I have created a playlist of my amazing videos “YourTube Playlist — EID100 — module #5”.

1. the Digital Divide
2. Terms Of Service
3. Deep, Dark Web
4. Technological Breakthrough
5. Appy Pie

I chose these particular videos to include in my playlist, because they are of great interest to me. (1) The Digital Divide is the gulf between those who have ready access to computers and the Internet, and those who do not. I believe this is an issue that will increase in importance due to the growth of technology and its use in all aspects of life. (2)Terms Of Service (also known as terms of use and terms and conditions, commonly abbreviated as ToS or TOS and TOU) are rules, that one must agree to abide by in order to use a service. Terms of service can also be merely a disclaimer, especially regarding the use of websites. What rights are you signing away in order to use a product/program. Is it a fair trade? (3) The “dark web” is the encrypted network that exists between Tor or Onion router servers and their clients, whereas the “deep web” is simply the content of databases and other web services that for one reason or another cannot be indexed by conventional search engines. (4) Technology is the use of science in industry, engineering, etc., to invent useful things or to solve problems. A Breakthrough is the act of overcoming or penetrating an obstacle or restriction. A technological breakthrough would be the use of science to invent a useful method or product to overcome a previous obstacle or restriction. eg. Magic Leap technology as seen in the 5th video — using technological innovation in the form of a headset to integrate virtual objects seamlessly within our reality. (5)Appy Pie is a mobile app creator released for Android, iOS, Fire OS, and Windows Phone platforms that allows its users to create and monetize different types of mobile apps. It also features its own marketplace to show off apps created through it. When you think about it, it is amazing that this type of platform is available to the general public to create their own apps without the need to code. Before this innovation, it would be necessary to write the coding in order to create your own gap. This has a global impact, because this type of job went from being a specialized field, to something anyone and everyone has the opportunity and access to.
