In this blog I have discussed the use of videos as a tool in our teaching here at the Department of Computer Science, Nesna University College. I have used different software and uploaded videos to our own server, either as pure video files or as flash files. But you do not need fancy software to make small lecture videos. Just a webcam and a free account at YouTube.
The video in the previous post was done by using YouTube`s service for recording videos directly from your desktop camera. To post a video to your blog, you may either use the html code that YouTube present to you for embedding the video into a web page, or – as its done in WordPress- place the url in [ ] brackets as described in the “upload a video” instructions on your “Dashboard”.
