It has been the experience of the presenters that mindful use of social media can make learning feel fun. Video creation is an engaging way to connect with students and openly share knowledge. With open licensing, there is potential to facilitate the creation of remixed videos that target the specific needs of learners. What are the benefits of sharing videos on YouTube, and are the default licensing options enough?
The presenters invite discussion of evolving practices around YouTube video creation, discussion of the challenges to open licensing in this space and the potential for video use in education. Sharing of these experiences will help other educators consider if and how they may use YouTube. As an Open Educational Media practitioners, we can share examples of faculty attempts at using video lessons on YouTube and other platforms. What choices do they make and how do they impact reuse?
