Easily Add Interactivity To Videos With Tagazu

Web Publishing No Comments on Easily Add Interactivity To Videos With Tagazu 67

In 2015 it seems a bit odd that the major improvement to video content is simply that you can access it online.  If you go to YouTube or any other video site you essentially get the same old static videos that were being created 30 years ago.  A while back Adobe gave people the ability to create interactive videos with Flash, but for some reason that functionality never caught on.

Tagazu now gives you an interactive dimension to your videos, and best of all you can overlay this functionality on videos that have already been created.  You can add notes and links at specific points in the video to highlight or give explanations that deepen the experience for the viewer.

You can either add this to YouTube videos, or upload your videos to their servers.  Once you go through the process of tagging the video you can then embed the final product on your website.

The main problem when creating educational videos is that you have to provide enough information so slow learners can keep up, but not drag on so long the fast learners get bored and leave. This gives you the ability to add additional information, without bogging down your video.

Additionally if you are creating lifestyle videos this is an easy way to add sponsorship spots, or “buy now” options on your videos. When there is a shot of a woman in a cute dress you can have a link that takes the viewer to the web page where they can buy that dress.

Overall Tagazu seems like a good idea and the price is very reasonable if you plan to use it for you business or organization (Of course they have a free tier too.)

I am Eli "the Computer Guy" and have been in the tech industry for approx. 20 years doing all kinds of odd projects. I started as an electronics tech in the US Army, worked in corporate IT during the IT Boom, was an individual consultant and grew my tech shop to have numerous full time employees and supported small business clients with computer repair/ server maintenance/ web development/ surveillance systems/ telephone systems until the great recession. After that I started creating video training on all the topics I know and now have a YouTube Channel with over 500K subscribers. I am the founder of GeekBrainDump.com and my plan is to create a tech "news" site that I would actually find useful if I was still in the server room.
