Implication for Teaching and Learning

     Application on youtube can provide training to its users through the use of and exposure to these media. Even though Youtube is lack of educational goal, but through direct application to youtube, users can be exposed to the new media experience. It will give advantages to users especially for students to heighten their visual literacy which is an important skills in electronic culture today.  

      Many educators believe that the act of creating content in virtually any form is a valuable learning exercise, helping develop a deeper understanding of the subject matter and the tools used to create that content. To the extent that YouTube facilitates such creation, it has the potential to expose students to new insights and skills, as well as link them to various online communities. As a social-software application, YouTube is part of a trend among Net Generation students to replace passive learning with active participation, where everyone has a voice, anyone can contribute, and the value lies less in the content itself than in the networks of learners that form around content and support one another in learning goals (Educause Learning Initiative, 2006). 

     In conclusion, youtube will not only play a role in providing entertainment, but it can also be used to groom young talent for this new media applications. Users should be aware of current developments and should be wise to take this opportunity in order to move in line with current technology today.

Music Video and Lyrics

If I had known it was our last walk in the rain,
I’d keep you out for hours in the storm,
I would hold your hand, like a lifeline to my heart,
And underneath the thunder we’d be warn,
If I had only known it was our last walk in the rain.

If I had only known I’d never hear your voice again,
I’d memorize each thing you ever said,
And on these lonely nights, I could think of them, once more,
And keep your words alive inside my head,
If I had only known I’d never hear your voice again.

You were the treasure in my heart,
You were the one who always stood beside me,
So unaware, I foolishly believed that you would always be there,
But then there came a day when I closed my eyes,
And you slipped away.

If I had only known it was my last night by your side,
I’d pray a miracle would stop the dawn,
And when you smile at me, I would look into your eyes,
And make sure you know my love for you goes on and on,
If I had only known, If I had only known.

The love I would’ve shown,
If I had only known

Youtube has a lot of functions.  Normally music video in youtube consist of lyrics.  Thus, why music video always has lyrics along with it?  According to Heidi Peter, lyrics is like a semiotics.  It has to be written.  In other words, it was a sign.  Music video and lyrics is like a glue.  It stick together because, the song won't be meaningful without the lyrics.

According to the lyrics above, it is about a expression of feeling: love. The song was written by a women to remember her aunt as she pass away without signal.

Embed Codes & Share Button on Youtube : An Invitation to Infringe on Copyrights?

    Have we ever thought when we took the video from Youtube, it is one action that will lead to infringement of copyright? Maybe you never thought about the implications towards copyright, which is very serious issue that have to concern about.  But, we do not have to worry if we use it in the right way.  Embed codes and “share” buttons are a fast and easy way to share and diffuse information.  Let say you have a favorite video on Youtube and you want to share it with all your friends on Facebook, you can just click on “Share – Facebook” and your video will automatically appear on your Facebook page. But, you may wonder, do these embed codes make copyright infringement easier?  If the video page permits embedding, does this give me the right to publish it anywhere I want? How do I know when not to embed without permission? Should a formal request for permission be used whenever I want to share someone else’s material? If I display an embed code on my blog or website, am I allowing my content and material to be spread everywhere?

     Apparently, there is no real law on embed codes and copyright as well does not apply. In fact, when you decide to share or embed something that isn’t yours, you are not copying it claiming that the material is yours, you are simply sharing it, providing a link to it and if you don’t copy, then you are not breaking copyright law. The content is never passed through your server, but streamed directly from the host site. Also, there is really no need for a formal permission request to the owner of the material, shall you wish to embed it, because the owner itself decides to make his material embeddable or non embeddable, he has a choice and if he doesn’t want to have his material shared, it won’t be happen. Most users actually prefer their material to be spread, so more people can get to experience it and know them (Isabella & Maya, 2010).

      So, in conclusion, what we can say that is share buttons and embed codes haven't really triggered web copyright issues, because they have just eased our way to communicate in an effortless and fast way.  Embed codes use is just to share material which is different form of copying something and claiming it one's own.  Even the Copyright Law has a lot of revising to concern these communications means, but ultimately embed codes and share buttons stay true to the prime philosophy of Internet and the web.  It simply to say diffusion of anything for anybody, without excessive limitations.

Understanding The Photo Value

Have u ever realize one photo can describe a thousand meaning?  What does it mean by "A picture is worth a thousand words"?  This was probably due to the facts that photo has light and color effects, the posture of person involve inside, their emotions, their body gesture, the face expression and many more.
According to Walter Benjamin, there is a little history of photo where it is "the phenomenon of photography" as still being "a great and mysterious experience"—even if, for them, this was no more than the consciousness of "standing before a device which in the briefest time could capture the visible environment in a picture that seemed as real and alive as nature itself."
            The purpose of the photo being taken is to create a memory about the place, or people and event involve.  Usually, the photo resemblance about thing related with the happiness.  It is rarely to hear people take photo while they are sad, unless the photo itself was taken by other people.  Same goes to the angry and other expression.
            In modern technology era, there’s lot of device to take picture.  One of the most nearer device with our daily life is hand phone or mobile phone.  This probably due to the facts that we bring it with us everywhere we go.  Other device could be camera, video camera, computer camera and not to forget MP5.
            The value of the photo or picture taken is for the future used which to be remember as a memory.  This can be seen through family picture and things that we go through in life.  Secondly, photo can also be used in education.  This can be seen through lecturer slide in class to attract the student.  Thirdly, photo value is to create good environment in our life, for example the picture of beautiful environment like waterfall being put in the house to create warm feelings.  Not only that, photo value also for history use liked what we seen now.  For instance, the picture of our former prime minister like Tunku Abdul Rahman.  Yet, photo also for media purpose like advertising purposes.  This can be seen through advertising like McDonald who show it burgers and price.
            Furthermore, photo value is to create joke like cartoon picture and many more.  Thus, it is also important to be proving for something that happen or in other words a witness.  For example, Tomlinson, a London guy being killed by a New Yorker picture that being taken.  This can be very important record for the police officer.  Last but not least, photo can be way to find money.  This can be seen through career like photographer where people get money just by taking picture.  Therefore, in this issue, photo has a lot of value depend on how people use it.  The understanding of photo is important in order to avoid misunderstanding about certain issue which can be seen in scandal or so on.  As a matter of conclusion, used photo sharing carefully and please don’t ever misuse the technology that we have but appreciate it.

Beware of Photo Sharing

It sounds good when we can share any photo that had been captured and share it to others by posting it or uploading it on the internet. However, we must be careful with what we must and must not share as it is related to our privacy where we might not want to get exposed by others to notice. At google you can control the photo that you would like to share by clicking this link . It’s easier right? We must control our desire and not just simply reveal or expose our privacy to others especially to the person that we don’t know or recognize. We can also share photo by using Flickr by login to Yahoo.

My personal view is that when I was thinking of photo sharing, I will start to think about the bad side and the good side of it. Sharing is just like reflecting yourself to the whole world. Just imagine, if your personality in reality was a good girl when suddenly you share a picture that totally different with your personality will actually beyond your mind can make you yourself become the other side or it can be negative. I saw many people who share photo that can exposed them to danger or even can commit themselves to criminal. Take note that : "Bad News Travel Fast" Our action might being watched by others.

We are human being and we cant run away with gossip by others. Each and every step that we take will be watched by others. Watch out you step. Your image might be spoil with just a picture or photo that you share.

From Manual to Digital

What is manual?  What is digital?

Before...when we still a little kid, when we didn't know how to used computer, if we want to share a picture or video, we have to do it manually with friends.  This means, by giving VCD, disk or if not using camera. Nowadays, we didn't again having problems on how to share pictures.  All we have to do is download Upload video or picture. Everything is so easy, due to the passage of technology increasingly sophisticated. Every day, when we open our eyes, the first thing we see is laptop. How easy having technology as all work can be done very fast. Similarly, the entertainment artist that we want to see also can be search, all at our fingertips, what we want all we can get easily, right? Yet, if we want to see the movie. All we need to do is buy dvd or vcd, download Stinky likes the Internet which is quickly and easily. 

Now if my colleagues and i want to have some discussion, all we need is to activate ourself in cyberspace via Yahoomail or any social networking site to 'chat'. Through that, we can do sharing pictures with friends. Very easy, ask first if you want pictures of your friends or close friends.  Just do the post.  'Photo Sharing', will appear quickly. Very effective right!

Once again, as we know Youtube is video sharing website that allow us to share original-created video with the people all around the world. Surprisingly, since Youtube was founded in February 2005, the number of the Youtube user is 90million each and every month plus 2.9 million of video view per month!

From Youtube also we can watch any movie  that people shared, just search any type of the movie you would like to watch. Either the movie is in Malay, English or others, there a lot of choices for you to choose and just simply click either one of it. Then you just can simply watch it or download it using the real player Application if you have the Application.

Before I discuss it further, we must know the definition of the downloading. Downloading is the transmission of a file from one computer system to another, usually smaller computer system. From the Internet user's point-of-view, to download a file is to request it from another computer (or from a Web page on another computer) and to receive it.

As a youtube user, have you download any movie or video through Youtube site? For sure, most of the answer is yes. Since we are born in the age of  technology, it is not surprising if many of us prefer to download any movie from the Youtube rather than buying the original disc that maybe cost a lot of money, specially the student. But have we though that our action may effect the film industry specially in Malaysia?

Without our conscious, our actions have caused loss to the Malaysian film industry because we not paying people work or idea with any reward or royalty. Thus, because of this reason Malaysian film industry can not be comparable with the other country film industry. Just because of  we do not appreciate the work and ideas of others, it make Malaysian one of the country that produce pirated material. and this action also violate state laws. Despite various of enforcement actions were taken, such as seizing and punishing those who sell pirated goods, but still  do not avail.

This not only caused losses to the film industry, but at the same time it cause the loss of the Cinema industry. Example, for those who stay at Kuching for sure you will know the Star Cineplex. If the pass, the star Cineplex is full with the audience but know the situation is different. What we can see, just few of the people will going to the cinema to watch the movie because most of them prefer to download the movie and simply watch it at home.

This scenario  totally different from 5 years before, where we still can see all the Cinema will full of crowd if there a new movie was screened. But now  just because of the technology  sophistication and downloading application, it rarely for us to watch the movie at the cinema.

Mdm. J lecture

Do you know your neighbours?

Today was the 23rd of May 2012, as I sat in lecture room, our lecturer Pn. Jamilah opposed the question: "Do you know all of your friends in Facebook?", "How many of you can memorise 5 important number in your mobile phone?". Then, Fatin Amira who was one of my classmate mentioned all 5 number correctly. Surprisingly, all 5 numbers that she had mentioned was the person who closed to her like her sibling, love ones and also family plus relatives. Then, Pn. Jamilah explained to us that we do not bother about others because the two important part that had been discuss is about community and also society. 

Community Images

What is Community?

A community or a group can be explained as a group who interact with each other or among themselves who share the same interest perhaps it can be neither small or big communities. I  can say that I'm a part of Facebook community because me and my friend share the same interest which is the social networking websites that we loves and prefer is Facebook. I also do share the same interest with my house-mate called Zaphne when we share the same hobby which is cooking. We used to hangout together and try new recipe and also exchange recipes and at the same time we do hangout together and also joining other friends who share the same hobby like us.

Bidayuh Society at My Village at Kampung Tembawang Sauh (Bau)

What is Society?

Based on my understanding, I can say that society was a group of people who live together under a same roof or living together at a place and also practices the same religion, custom,law and also culture. I am proudly to say that I am proud to be part of Bidayuh Society. The reason why am I saying this is that I learn Bidayuh language, tradition, and also culture. I must take a baby step before I can actually tell others about what I had learned or know about Bidayuh Culture because we should not tell others or giving others wrong information.

Do I really know my neighbours?

I am pleased to say that I really know my neighbour and I still remember them until now. My first neighbour was Miss Rani then when me and my family moved to another barrack, my neighbours are Mr Lim Ted Mau, Mr Soo Kheng Tiong, Mr Syed Suhartoo, Mr Kasbendi bin Ponijan and also Hassan bin Jawa. I do know about their family background too because they used to visit us during free time and my family also doing some activities such as bbq and also "berulam" which are a good way to closen and also tighten the relationship among neighbours. I recall back the tragedy of thieves who sneak into my neighbour house at night. At first, I thought it was just a cat who prey for the rat but my parent awake after hear the noise and decided to figure out what noise was that.

New Technologies of Human Communication

When we talked about new technology, there's a lot of thing that come across our mind.  First of all, as individual people will think about development.  This probably because people used to connect technology with development.  Sometimes, people describe new technology through new machine, factory and so on.  However, in this context, we are not going to reject all those thinking, what we going to do is explain what is exactly new technology and how it related with human communication.

Do you know what is blogger?  Do you know what is Facebook? and do you know what is Youtube?

I think, we don't have to explain that more details.  If i ask the whole class, all will answer that they know what is those thing.  Furthermore, i guess half of the class has blogger and youtube account while, one person in each class may have two facebook account.  This means, we all are familiar with blogger, youtube, facebook and other websites.  Why, i asking about this issue is because i want the whole class to understand that those stuff they used are called as new technology.  Not only that the mobile phone also new technology.

Human interaction is a communication between two parties or more.  Normally this communication can be seen through verbal and nonverbal communication.  Sometimes, this kind of communication doesn't need face to face communication and the interaction can also be done through other medium.  For instance, interaction between me and Mardhati, Zaphne, Ianabella and Nor Azua can be done through mobile phone.  Not only that, we also can interact using email and social networking.  Why this happen is because of the development of "sciences and technologies" in the world brought to many kind of intervention being done.

Therefore, the new technologies of human communication is development and evolution of human communication technologies, focusing on computer mediated communication and its impacts on individuals, society, business and organization.

So, we cannot run from this issue.  We live in the technology era which everything by our surrounding covered with technology.  According to Marco C. Yzer and Brian G. Southwell in the article called New Communication Technologies, Old Questions, new  technologies of human communication is nearly with computer mediated communication.   Here, it were being agree by both thinkers that, "computer-mediated communication (CMC), an area of study that has added significantly to our understanding of the relationship between human interaction and technological modalities",+Old+Questions..pdf

Fantastic Sharing

  1. Unsafe Way

    • Once you have published your photos online, you've essentially given up control of what happens to them. It's very easy for anyone to copy your photos and edit or alter them in any way possible. Moreover, once they've finished altering your photos, they are then free to distribute them to any other sites or publications. And even if the person does not alter your photos, they can still take them from the site in which you posted them and distribute them to whomever or wherever they want. Once this happens, you have no recourse. You won't be able to retrieve those pictures and restore them to their original state.


    • Regardless of whether you've emailed your photos to a single person or posted them on a social networking site, when you share pictures, especially pictures of people, they are subject to alteration and then re-publication by others. This puts you at risk, for example, when posing in suggestive ways that can easily be altered. Situations have occurred where someone has taken a relatively innocent picture, or one that was just meant for friends or family to see, and photo-shopped the picture in pornographic ways and re-posted it. It can be almost impossible to then have the photo removed from an Internet site.

    Nude photos

    • Teens who post illicit nude pictures of themselves or others can be at risk of facing child pornography charges. There are strict laws and rules forbidding these kinds of photos online and anyone who posts such photos --- even if they are underage themselves --- can fact charges. If those charges are upheld, a teen could be forced to register as a sex offender in some states. This is not an aspect of posting pics online that most people even consider.

    Beware of personal information

    • Even a non-compromising photo that includes personal information allows people to identify who is in the photo or provides clues that could be used to track a person down. It's important to be careful that identifying information is not available for strangers to use to obtain information about anyone in the photo. This is one of the primary ways in which online predators access victims through the Internet.

What is Youtube?

Some of you may not really know about Youtube and maybe just watch the videos that you like, then switch to another videos and finish. I don't think people are interested to know more details about Youtube, what is the function, when its being establish, who are the founder and so on when they are using Youtube. Even if there may not be much. Entertainment is the most favoured by people when they access into Youtube. 

Youtube actually is the video sharing website which is created by the three former Paypal employees in February 2005 known as Chad Hurley, Steve Chen and Jawed Karim.  The ideas to designed the Paypal logo come out by Hurley after he was reading a Wired article about the online payment and e-mailing the start up in search of a job. Youtube allows users to upload, view and share the videos even in public. Anyone can register and watch the videos from this website. The person who have register to this website can upload the videos as many as they want because there are no limitations or policy are charged. So that, unregistered people also can watch the videos which have been uploaded to the Youtube. Not only uploading the videos, people also can download the videos from the Youtube if they want to.

Have you ever wondered what is the beginning of Youtube? How this website become more and more popular and accessible to the public? The first ever Youtube video uploaded is a video of Jawed Karim himself "Me at the zoo" which is taken by Yakow Lapitsky at the San Diego Zoo in front of the elephant enclosure going on about long trunks. What is very interesting, it shows racked up a very healthy 4282,497 viewers since its online debut on April 23, 2005.  Starting with this videos until now, we can see the high rate of video uploading in Youtube. We also can enjoy a variety of interesting video provided by Youtube and share with many people. So that, people have many option to choose whether they want to upload or download a music, game, drama and so on. Now, lets we see the history of Youtube .

Service provided by Youtube give many advantages and benefits to people, but at the same time there are some issues arising from this site. Since Youtube name registered on Valentine's Day 2005, a confusion arise with the name.  Youtube name caused a huge misunderstanding for Universal Tube & Reform Equipment based in Perrysburg, Ohio. According to them, "" was overwhelmed with traffic from people that tried to spell the video site's name phonetically. The uploading of videos may containing defamation, pornography,  violence , entertainment and so on. So that, the manufacturing company sued Youtube claiming its business was damage by the video site. However, the claims were dismissed and after the insident that company move their site business to "" to avoid confusion .  For the original is a video-themed landing page for bad spellers.

Uncensored Video

The first thing that come across my mind is uncensored video that give me a bad impression. Some videos show people personal life, sex life and also seductive video. Surprisingly, pornography also being uploaded. What is happening? My point here is that we have a lot of users not only adults but children too.

Hot Asian in Uncensored Action found in YouTube

Is this video consider pornography? For me I will say yes because when a model or a person body had been exposed to the video sharing site,that would be automatically being an uncensored video for the under age viewer of YouTube,which can influence them.Somehow after several times being announce and being noticed that will be no uncensored videos upload,but some of the YouTube users still not concerned about the warning has been given.

Lil jon feat pitbull Uncensored videos on YouTube

Some of the uncensored videos includes various artiste form all over the world. We must understand that in certain country obscene scene cannot be shown to public and the content must be filtered. For example, in Malaysia an advertisement also being banned just because the video got an issued for mixing the religious.The scene is about celebrating Hari Raya Aidilfitri but the advertisement is just like being held on a Christmas Day celebration.

Commercial Ads

Yes or No?

What is commercial ads?

I would like to explain about advertising generally. Advertising is one of the technique where a person can use it as one of their business strategy to let others know about their products, services and also capture others attention. Most advertising promotes goods for sale, but at the same time it can be publish in the newspapers, magazines, and also broadcast media. Different media was chosen based on different types of target audience.

Banned Ads

Video shows ads for Diet Coke which promoted by Jackie Chan

Video above shows that Levis banned advertisement in United Kingdom. 


No doubt that everyone can take a look at the commercial ads meaning to say there are no more censored. We cannot blame anyone. This action actually giving the advantage to the product because everyone know the existence of it. Although advertiser might lose some profit but its actually give them an advantage that people can get o know he product information. 


Sensitivity is one of the main important that we should consider when we are trying to do commercial ads. We might earn money from it but at the same time we also loss some profit. When the advertisement started to be banned the message might not reach target audience as the ads only being uploaded in YouTube and none will be publish on the television or radio.

Info vs Ads

Youtube is photo sharing service that allow user to share their photo and video with all the people around the world. There are various kind of video that can we share in Youtube such as entertainment, Information, education, and others. In other word, we can  just simply search and find any type of video from Youtube.
In fact, nowadays Youtube user tend to upload their personal video to share with public as a trend especially for those who are actively using the internet. most of the popular  personal video that Youtube user share is such as information video sharing. Example the video that post by mahalodotcom all of their video that they post is to share how to cooking and baking. For those who are interested and love to cooking and baking, this kind of video is really useful for them. Just like me, because I am also one of the Youtube user. If I feel want to bake a cheesecake  but don't know to bake it in the right way I  simply type "how to bake a cheese cake" and search at the Youtube.In a few second there a lot of video about what I am looking for will appear and  It really easy and there a lot of video that we can choose to watch and select. I just watch one of the video and just simply baked the cheese cake based on what I watch at the Youtube.
Beside that, what we can see from this second video are they trying to promoting their college/ University with others. They not just sharing their skill for baking but at the same time they are trying to persuade those who are love to baking can further study at their college/ University .They also want the people to know that their are offering the culinary course for those who are really interested to enhance their skill in baking.

In this point of view, what I can conclude is beside using the Youtube to share the useful video with those people outside there, some of the organization also using the advantages of the Youtube web as a medium to advertise their product to achieve their target and goal. With the advantages of the Youtube web also will not cost them a single cent and at the same time there can target many  people all around the world to watch the video with free. 

For those who are using the youtube in the right way, for sure there a lot of benefit that can we get through the video sharing in the youtube. and it really depend on us how we using the advantages of technology in the nowadays.  :-)
