Protected: Video platform UU: Adding metadata, moving and publishing videos

This content is password protected. To view it please enter your password below:

  • 1. Metadata of videos

  • Step 1

    To ensure that your students can find your videos, it is important to:

    • Place the video in the right channel, see: 2. Moving videos
    • Give your video a clear title and metadata, see below:

    To adjust the title or metadata, open the video and click “Edit”. You will be redirected to the tab “Parameters”.

    Title of the video:

    • You could use the same title as the first slide of the PowerPoint
    • You could start the title with a number, if it is part of a series.

    For example: “01 Principles of groundwater Flow”

  • Step 2

    Video metadata, make sure you fill in the following information:

    • Description – Give a summary of the video
    • Keywords – Here you can enter search terms, for example the subject or the course code.
    • Categories – select the relevant categories.

  • 2. Moving videos

  • Step 3

    Videos you record in the UU video platform are saved in your personal channel. However, if you want to share the video, it is recommended to place the videos in the course channel. In this way you give students within your faculty access to the video. See also the question in the FAQ: How can you authorize a student for a course channel outside his/her faculty? Or the  instruction video: Publish and share.

    If you want to share the video from your personal channel, it is necessary to give students access to the video, see the question in the FAQ: How can I publish videos from My Channel?

    Please use the following steps to move your video:

    1. Open the video and click on “Edit”, you will be redirected to the “Parameters” tab
    2. Under the heading: “Location”, click “Select a channel” to move the video. A new window opens in your browser (see image).
    3. Select the channel in which you want to place the video, you can search for the right channel via the tree structure (on the left) or via the Search button at the top. Use the course code or course title as a search term.
    4. Click on “Select this channel”
    5. Click on “Save Changes” (bottom right) and then click on the arrow (top left) to go back.

  • 3.  Publishing videos

  • Step 4

    After recording or uploading a video, the video isn’t published automatically. You will be alerted by the message at the bottom of the video (see image).

  • Step 5

    Once the video has a clear title, the metadata is filled in and the video is in the course channel, the video can be published. Please use the following steps:

    1. Open the video and click on “Edit”, you will be redirected to the “Parameters” tab
    2. Go to the section: Publishing parameters.
    3. Check the Published-box to publish the video. In addition, you have the option to enter a date and time under (Un)Publish automatically on: if you want to (un)publish the video from a specific date/time. (see image)

    Click on “Save Changes” (bottom right) and click on the arrow (top left) to go back.
