Many libraries have already invested in streaming video services. If you have – or if you’re making the decision now to bring video into your institution – engaging faculty will be of key importance. How can you show faculty ways to get the most out of their video resources? When faculty embrace video, the result is increased usage and best value from your investment.
This presentation will show you examples of creative ways faculty have used video to improve research and how they’ve integrated video into teaching for specific subject areas.
We’ll discuss clips and playlists, scholarly sharing, integration with course management systems like Blackboard and LibGuides, embedding, training videos, acquisition flexibility, discoverability, and other techniques.
We’ll also give you a sneak peek of a soon-to-be-launched, cutting-edge technology called MediaScribe that lets the user “decorate” a video with custom-selected audio files, images, annotations, study guides, and more.
We hope you’ll leave the presentation with new ideas for promoting video, building awareness, and creating excitement among your faculty members.
