What is pintagging?

A new concept to create transmedia videos


To “pintag” is to add “pins” and “tags” to a video to identify and mark those parts that we want. Through the pins, we leave specific marks. With the tags, we directly underline the video. All in a very visual and interactive way.

But in addition, pintagging is enhancing a video, extending it, enriching it with information and links to other digital formats, thus creating a transmedia video.

Do you want to see a pintagged video?

What video can be pintagged?

A class, an explanation, a presentation…

Whether face-to-face, online or hybrid, record your class or part of it and make it accessible asynchronously.

A video conference

A meeting, a webinar, a visit from an expert, a 'mystery classroom', an online presentation to another class in another town (or country!)

Any video!

Record your own video tutorials, import any YouTube video or upload directly from your computer.

The “pins” and “tags” can be added both live (during recording or screencast), and in editing mode when they can be completed by adding the necessary information and links.

Video as an attractive resource

The video format has grown exponentially in recent years, although today’s students consume it mainly with leisure purpose, the impact that certain youtubers or specific channels have when it comes to making academic content more accessible is confirmed. Educators have also found in them the opportunity to reach their students in a more attractive way that is closer to their reality.

Developing new skills

If, in addition, it is the students themselves who pintag their own transmedia videos, they will develop much-needed skills for their personal and academic growth, such as selecting information, identifying main and secondary ideas, relating, summarizing, etc.


Pintagging also allows us to promote differentiation by creating different videos according to need. Starting from the same video, we can adapt the information contained in the pins and tags to the different levels or profiles that we need.

Examples of use
  • Explain, summarize, exemplify, highlight and expand the information contained in the video.
  • Point out the parts, phases, stages, causes, consequences, etc.
  • Use pins as a table of contents.
  • Provide feedback on the recording of a presentation, talk or debate made by the students.
  • Leave a ready-to-copy template to take notes (Cornell notes for example).
  • Add links (Web, Wakelet collection, Form, Presentation, Mentimeter, Kahoot, Quizziz, etc…).
  • Provide an infographic, image, diagram, mental or conceptual map, graphic, presentation in Genially…
  • Add the link to an audio, a video (either external or previously pintagged).
  • Assign exercises, activities, tasks and projects.
  • Have students record a summary or answer comprehension questions using the Flip tool.
  • Assign a task from Google Classroom through a direct link.
  • Share or expand the bibliography.
Online meetings are becoming more popular

The number of face-to-face meetings has considerably reduced in favour of online meetings, shorter and more frequent, where a lot of information is given and work is done in a different way. This format has also prevailed in the world of in-company training, so that webinars have become one of the fastest growing modalities.

citb REC as a work tool

With citb REC, recording these trainings, work team meetings or with families in the school environment, is a very good way of dealing with the information dealt, leaving a record of what was discussed, marking the key ideas with pins and/or tags, agreements reached, linking to mentioned documents or awarding actions to be carried out between the participants.

Pintag to attest

The citb REC pins and tags can be used as meeting “minutes”, thanks to the export in PDF format so that it can be later ratified by means of a digital signature.

Examples of use
  • Record videos, trainings, capture video of the screen to explain a certain procedure, application, etc.
  • Produce small video tutorials on the company’s procedures or protocols, or simply to show a colleague the route to carry out any activity.
  • Enrich all this with the necessary information and links.
