Access to some collections is free whilst others need to be subscribed to. A password is required for access to the collections subscribed to by your institution. Your library or learning resource centre should be able to supply you with logins. (This was previously an Athens password, and may have changed to another authentication method).The JISC content site provides an introduction to digital collections designed for education. Many of the resources do not require a login but others do. Your library or learning resource centre will be able to advise you if your college or HEI has subscribed to the resource and if so provide you with a login.

Multimedia Sharing These are sites that allow you to upload digital images & videos. They have a comment & rating facility which allow recommendations to be made. This feature can be useful as it acts as a quality stamp enabling you to filter out unsuitable content and include content which others have found useful. Multimedia sites such as flickr give access to a a good source of images that can be searched by licence (usually creative commons) making it easier to find resources that can be used with students. When using multimedia sites, people should be aware that some of the content does not have copyright clearance and because it is on the site doesn’t mean it can be used. You should also be aware that there is a potential for inappropriate content to appear on the site so you should be careful when using sites such as YouTube with learners. For this reason many organisations block access to some multimedia sharing sites. Media Sharing ToolsYouTube – users can upload video, comment on videos, browse for useful content, share with colleagues or students, content can be embedded in your blog or wiki.Flickr – Sharing of images on a website – can be accessed by friends, family and if you make them available anyone on the web. Images can be tagged and notes added. Users can comment and groups joined. Flickr photos can be embedded via slideshow feature in other tools e.g. blog.TeacherTube – similar to YouTube but with an education focus. The aim is to provide an online community for sharing instructional videos and provide a safer venue for teachers and learners to post and view content.
