Meet Coub & Learn ASL for "Photobomb"

Submitted by Kate Meersschaert on Mon, 03/02/2015 - 2:19pm.

While perusing possible NewLearningTimes.com "High Five" content this morning I discovered, Coub.com via this Boingboing.net article reposted from this article in online magazine, Hopes & Fears. The piece teaches you popular internet slang interpreted as American Sign Language. What drew me in most (besides the innovative, multimedia content of the piece) was the look of the embedded Coub video content. The embedded content's aspect ratio seemed fresh and upon navigation to the Coub.com main site, the interface was refreshingly uncluttered and easy to use. Here is a screencapture of the simple process of grabbing an embed code (NOTE: you can easily customize the embed size):
