Publish a video

Once you've created a video you're going to want to share it with the world, or at least your small part of it. The two best options for publishing videos are the ubiquitous YouTube and Ensemble Video, a service SUNY Geneseo subscribes to.

  • Allow content to be embedded within myCourses
  • Allow content to be embedded within webpages (e.g. Drupal)
  • Are excellent ways to share student video assignments
  • Have a 2 GB files size limit on video uploads
