We estimate that more than 50% of academic libraries now offer streaming video services. Departments ranging from anthropology to zoology are now incorporating video content in their classes.

This presentation will show use cases of how streaming video can be used, including:
  • Examples of how video can improve research
  • Examples of how video has been combined to improve learning for specific courses
  • Examples of how to annotate video and publish it

Librarians and faculty will learn how to get the most out of their video resources; how video can be promoted in the library; which departments can benefit the most as well as a technical understanding of what cutting edge technology makes possible today.  Existing users of streaming video will leave with new ideas and those who’ve yet to offer streaming resources will better be able to make a decision on whether it’s worth it.

    I wanted to ask if we could possibly get a copy of the slides from the webcast? You provided good information. There was no mention of whether or not this was available.
