All UWF faculty, students, and staff can publish audio and video content in a variety of ways through the UWF servers. UWF instructors use these technologies to supplement classroom learning and as an integral part of online classes. The following options are available:
A podcast is a series of audio or video files that can be downloaded and played on a computer or personal media device, such as an mp3 player. The files in a podcast are typically published as a series of episodes. Your audience can listen to or watch a single episode, or subscribe to the entire podcast series so that new episodes are automatically downloaded to their computer, which can then be transferred to a personal media device.
Video streams allow your viewers to watch video over the Internet without first downloading the file to their personal computers. The video is continuously displayed to your viewers while being delivered from the UWF server.
With a media download, you simply save your video in a web folder and create a link to direct your audience to it.
