Effective use of video in e-Learning: MediaCore and Lambda Solutions

1,701 views

Published on

The use of video isn’t a new trend in education and training, but it is a growing one. Whether you're in an education or corporate learning environment, video is often a key component of online learning, and also augments in-classroom conversations.

Video increases engagement and has driven flipped classroom models and self-paced learning environments. How video is used can make a big difference in learning outcomes, but it also has unique challenges: the large file sizes, difficulties in hosting, and ensuring availability across a variety of device types. If video is the future of online learning, how do you get there?

  • Low quality video is more distracting than useful
    When a lot of users hit the same video that can cause delays
    Issues with hosting media on e-learning / Moodle / Totara server.
    Video uses more bandwidth and take longer to load - File sizes – long and difficult upload times
    Cross platform support – what devices?
    security - access levels, who can add video?
    tagging, search-ability
  • The first platform that people think of for hosting video is YouTube. And, for many applications YouTube performs well – look at the amazing success of the Khan Academy for example. However, when you upload video to YouTube, you sign away your rights to the intellectual property that the video represents. The time and effort that it took to generate that video means it is probably worth protecting. Speaking of protection, there are potential security problems since video streams and connections are not encrypted to protect the identity of your students. Sure, you can request that videos remain private, but that makes it difficult to embed them right into your courses and students have to hunt through emails to find the video’s you’ve shared with them. Because YouTube hosts millions and millions of videos, and millions of people will be uploading at the same time, often the video encoding process can result in a long wait. The other thing about YouTube, is that it only hosts videos and does not accommodate other rich media such as audio files, documents and other formats.
  • PoodLL is an open source series of plugins for Moodle that adds audio and video recording and storage as well as components like stopwatches and flashcards. Files you upload to the PoodLL cloud are available to students working in your Moodle courses. PoodLL is smart, but does not convert files from one format to another, so either you have to upload several versions of a video, or your students have to be working on devices that support your standard file format – this means some people might be left out. For many users, the process of manually converting a video into multiple formats is a technically challenging feat.

    A new way to manage your video assets and embed them in courses has recently emerged. Private media hosting platforms like MediaCore allow you to upload and manage your video assets in a private cloud. Your intellectual property remains your own, and all sessions are encrypted both ways – up and down -- to protect student and teacher identities as well as media assets.
