Delivering streaming video media safely and securly via your College or Uni learning environment has just got easier. Read on. The Learning and Skills Network has introduced MoLeTV which will be targeted primarily to colleges in England, under the auspices of the Learning and Skills Council. Find other Molenet resources including the new mobile technologies resources on the molenet site.

Use of this new digital media site enables registered users to upload media in most of the common formats. 'Uploaders' are able to edit and delete their content at any time.

What are the benefits of using this service?

• Promotion of curriculum content and sharing good practice
• media automatically 'streams'
• often a smaller file size
• video is converted to a variety of formats and is accessible to VLE's such as Moodle, websites, mobile devices and PDAs using the embed code and/or download links as appropriate.
• is curriculum relevant
• is primarily UK based resources
• is divided into Learning and Skills Council (LSC) categories
• saves uploading media to your college servers
• saves on back-up time for large files
• embeds as flash media and saves trouble with plug-ins for other formats cross-platform (Windows, Linux and Macintosh)
• helps stop staff uploading large AVI files to your server! (although only AVIs with specific codecs will convert)
• has RSS feeds
• will link to iTunes
• can upload podcasts and vodcasts

The website is now available at Users can create an account on the site (login area) which will allow them to upload media.

Did you know that there is also an excellence gateway TV "channel"? Well here's an example


I prefer to use the free service vimeo to host and stream my vodcasts. It's excellent quality, and does not compress the video as much as Youtube does. Resulting in a higher quality video clip. Can't always be sure of the quality of delivery tho?
