Hey, everybody. I frequently have videos that I want to share with others. Sometimes these videos are 20-30-40 minutes long. I want to be able to share them online without having to download any problems. I prefer an online program that is free or inexpensive that allows me to control who does or does not view my videos. I know there are a lot of sites that will host videos and video sharing, but some of them are soooooo slow when it comes to uploading my files. Any suggestions on what to use and where to go? Thanks!
I just saw this discussion, and it's closely related to my question....
Just came across this site, I'm not sure how fast the upload speed is but the file limit per video is 500mb and you're restricted to 2GB of storage and bandwidth per month. Watch the video and see if it could work - http://www.viddler.com/learn-more/
In one of his school blog posts, Richard Byrne has written about 47 Alternatives to Using YouTube in the Classroom.
Here are a few video sharing sites mentioned in Byrne's blog that you may want to check out:
Please share what you think of these. If you decide to use any of these in your classroom, I would be interested in knowing how they worked and why you chose a specific site.
Thank you Erica for starting this group. I am a new teacher and haven't had much luck in finding free educational videos. I found short YouTube videos that work for some lessons, but oftentimes there is interference. I am looking forward to finding more video resources.
Susan, what kind of videos do you need? Are you looking for videos to show students? If yes, what grade, subject, etc.? Are you looking for professional development videos for teachers? Are you looking for student/teacher created videos or something that's more professional? If you give us an idea of what you would like, perhaps we can help share more ideas. I've found some good video sites in the past, but I'm not sure what kind of videos you want? Others here might also be able to share ideas too.
