Using the video
Video content should not be uploaded directly to Blackboard, instead it should be uploading to the Stream Service. This service functions like an institutional version of YouTube, and videos from here can be integrated into module spaces on Blackboard or pages on Mahara.
The Stream Service also serves as a location for the sharing of video content. Staff have full control over who sees their content, however, because all staff can upload to this space it is hoped that some of the videos can be used across different modules and even different courses. A general example of this could be videos on ‘How to use the UHI Referencing System’ created for one module could be shared on the Stream Service and used in a different module. A more specific example is the possibility that videos created for a science module demonstrating a process, a technique or some equipment, could be used as part of engineering modules.

The reuse of high quality video content across programmes can add an extra dimension to a course and as part of the Flipped Classroom model can free up tutor time for engagement in more dynamic activities and interaction with students.
All efforts have been made to ensure materials created by the EDU comply with current accessibility guidelines (JISC: Support for learners with disabilities).
