Tonight as I was working on a resource page for an upcoming webinar, I was browsing YouTube for videos on using PollEverywhere. To my surprise, I was a bit shocked to see a video I had uploaded a year ago to my TeacherTube account on the YouTube channel for “teachertubetutorials”. Not only do I identify myself at the beginning of the video, but if you’ve heard me speak, you will know from the accent that the voice is clearly mine. Why was I surprised? To the best of my knowledge, TeacherTube made no effort to notify me that they were moving my video to their YouTube Channel, nor did they bother to give me any credit in the description of the video or at the very least, a link back to my original upload on TeacherTube.
