What is YouTube?

YouTube is a video-sharing website on which users can upload, view and share videos.

Why would I use YouTube?

You may use YouTube videos as a teaching and learning resources.

Other Considerations

Storing and sharing video files:

Video/Audio upload: Kaltura is UQ's video server and the recommended system for the upload of videos for use in courses. Kaltura may also be used for the submission of student video assignments.

Note that, YouTube is not suitable for storing and sharing videos that content sensitive material (e.g. video of surgical procedures) or copyright material (i.e. resources you have purchased for your course) as the videos are stored by YouTube not UQ. 

Policy implications for external teaching tools: Before using any external teaching tool for the instruction of UQ students please consider this checklist.
