Online Lectures?

June 8, 2010

Do any of you have experience uploading lectures online? Youtube has a 10 minute limit and Vimeo has a small file size limit, so it’s hard to upload a full hour or hour and a half lecture. Any suggestions or recommendations? Other than to break up the lectures into 10 minute segments …

    I’ve experimented with doing this via audio which then has no length limits. I edit them a bit to take out stuff that is only of local interest, and anything potentially libellous, or questions from students that the mic. doesn’t pick up. I’ve done this over on the NT Pod under the heading “extended episodes”. It’s still an experiment at the moment, but it has had some good feedback.

    On Youtube, some do work with longer video file sizes, but I imagine that that has to be done from within a university’s own channel. So perhaps, if you are at a university or college, you could arrange something with the media people. Speaking for myself, though, I like the use of audio — reaches a far wider audience.

    Another option is Yovisto, a video site specifically for lectures and other academic videos. I haven’t uploaded anything there myself, but it’s a nicely designed site and they don’t seem to impose any time or size limit.

    Three possibilities I found:

    YouTube Partner Program
    http://www.youtube.com/partners

    If you are an educator, your school can apply to the EDU Program but you would be uploading on the school account.

    Your third option is the Nonprofit program.
