Thinking Creatively with Video: MyCAT does not pussyfoot about


Published on

Presentation given at MELSIG, Nottingham 2015
Bev Cole, Mark Hetherington, Dario Faniglione, Birmingham City University
Tackling the problem of simply adding lots of video to your bit of the VLE… for your students only… and possibly doing something more interesting, creative, shareable, interactive and engaging with them instead. The Centre for Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT) at BCU will demonstrate their drag and drop solution for hard pressed staff that integrates both Kaltura (video streaming) and their learning repository!
