Video in Teaching and Learning- Part 2
Written by Janene Harman, ANU Online
Welcome to day 4 of this Coffee course. Today we will be looking at sharing, access and copyright for video. After creating and editing your video there are a number of options for making your video available to your students for them to access. This can depend on the type of video you have made and also if you want it to be available exclusively to your students or more publicly to the wider world. The content you have included in the video may also affect this decision.
What concerns do you have with sharing video? Post about this in the forum or tell us if you have had any good or bad experiences of sharing video.
Options for sharing video:
At the ANU any lecture capture videos are recorded in the lecture recording system within the room you are lecturing in using the Echo360 recording system. Recordings are automatically stored in Echo360 and housed there for students to access from their courses.
From the beginning of 2018 Echo360 ALP (Active Learning Platform) will be fully available throughout the University. ALP allows you to organise videos you create, such as using PCAP (Echo360 Personal Capture) or your lecture recordings. Here they can be housed and organised in the one place. ALP allows you to have PowerPoint presentations alongside your video in which you can create an active learning experience for your students through the development of interactive slides. These slides will allow you to embed video you have created and create quiz slides to go with your video. More detail about ALP will be coming in a future coffee course specifically about this platform.
YouTube and Vimeo
After you have downloaded your PCAP or the recording that you have created you may want to put it into YouTube or Vimeo for your students to access. These platforms allow you to upload video you have created,for example you could download your lecture recordings, edit them and keep the key bits or add images and then put them into one of these platforms for students to access. You might want to find out if your college has an existing YouTube or Vimeo account that you can use or you can set up your own channel for free by going to these sites and joining up.
The following short video’s demonstrate the processes of uploading video to YouTube and Vimeo:
Once your video is in YouTube or Vimeo you can then link to it from your Wattle course or embed it in a page. Keep in mind that it is better to embed a video within a page in Wattle rather than embedding it directly into your course as this can cause problems for students who are on limited internet access and the video may be difficult to download especially if it is a large video.
Keep in mind copyright!
Remember when sharing video you need to keep copyright in mind. This means making sure that any images or content you are using in your videos is copyright compliant especially if your video are going to be available to the wider world. There are laws in Australia that apply to what and how video can be used within the educational context. Below are a number of links to various university guides on copyright and how it applies to lecture recording capture and to the use of video within Learning Management sites (LMS). You need to consider your and be aware of your responsibilities when using video and images in your teaching.
The following resources provide guidance and information about copyright in relation to video use:
- The University of Queensland Institute for Teaching and Learning Innovation
- Copyright for teaching at ANU
- Copyright and Multimedi, ANU library
- UC copyright guide
- UNSW library
- University of Melbourne Copyright and Teaching
Make use of the commons!
Sourcing creative commons materials and images to use in your teaching is the safest way to go. In the previous coffee course, Designing effective presentations Day 4, there are a number of links to CC image sites. The following slide show provides a good summary of creative commons for educators.
There are a number of sites that provide CC cleared video material that you can search for video resources to use in your teaching.
- CC on Vimeo
- Creative Commons Australia videos
- CC Search
- University of Canberra – links to CC materials
- OER Commons
Even though the material you use is freely available through Creative Commons it is good practice to attribute what you are using. The following sites provides guidance on attribution, Attributing Creative Commons Materials and Creative Commons Australia How to attribute Creative Commons licensed materials.
Other sites you might like to explore
The following sites have video resources already available that you could link to in your Wattle (Moodle) site. Many Universities have their own YouTube or Vimeo channels that you can go to to find video that you can link to and also CC video that you can use.
Big Think – this site houses videos developed by academics in the relevant field along with other resources on different topics in one easy to find place.
Another great place to find CC videos in YouTube is to search for University channels, here universities post many quality CC videos covering many faculty areas and you can access material from universities all over the world. Just look for the CC. Here are a couple of examples:
