We’ve been making growing use of videos posted to You Tube in classrooms, and many I’d like to share with students via our VLE (there’s far more good stuff out there than we’ve got time for). I’m wondering what the best way of going about this is…
I don’t particularly want to link directly, as many of the comments on videos are less than desirable and some of the ‘related videos’ are also not the kind of things I want to be drawing my students attention to. Some staff have taken to downloading clips, but I don’t want to upload these directly onto our server, partly for copyright reasons, and partly becuase it’ll hammer our bandwidth.
It seems to me that leaves me with the option to embed on a Moodle page (in which case should I create a ‘gallery’ of videos, or have one video per page?) or transfering the videos to another (safe) hosting site. The first is more time consuming, and static, the second may have copyright implications.
Do you make video available to students outside the classroom, and if you do, how do you do it?
