YouTube Videos

Video resources enhance the student learning experience and are excellent for conveying complex topics to students using video, graphics and audio.

For more information, refer to the Embed a YouTube Video guide.

Kaltura Videos

Kaltura, is UQ's video server which allows staff to optionally upload videos directly into a course, where students can play the video files live from inside the course (streaming) or by downloading them. Kaltura also includes basic video editing tools, a webcam recording tool and a desktop recording tool. Kaltura has the benefit of video content being priviate within a course and avoids issues with sensitive content on a public domain (i.e. YouTube) and copyright restrictions.

For more information, refer to the Insert a Kaltura Video into a Content Area guide.
