Multimedia Hosting Service for Academics

The Library and Learning Technologies are pleased to announce that JCU students and staff can now access multimedia teaching materials including video, off air broadcasts and music, in addition to text and images through LearnJCU.

The multimedia materials are hosted on a media streaming server, which means the content can be viewed quickly by students regardless of the speed of the bandwidth connection. Students can also jump to particular parts of the content by dragging the tracking bar.

Academic staff can submit multimedia content through the Reserve Online forms available from the Reserve Online For Academic Staff guide. More information about streaming digital media at JCU is provided by Learning Technologies including an FAQ, and hints on creating digital media files.
