UniTube: Retirement of Service

The Higher Education Development Centre created UniTube, and have been providing software updates and bug fixes. However, HEDC is no longer in a position to provide service updates, and as such, UniTube will not be supported beyond mid-2018 (we have extended the date to allow people to find alternate hosting services). While you can continue to use UniTube until then, you may wish to consider using another media hosting service, such as Podcasting (http://www.otago.ac.nz/podcasts) or Otago Capture (http://www.otago.ac.nz/capture), and if your media is public, YouTube (http://www.youtube.com). If you need assistance to select an alternative hosting service, please contact the IT Service Desk.

Richard White, University Copyright Officer, explains how to make sure your uploads are copyright-friendly.

UniTube is designed to facilitate the sharing of a wide range of educational materials between teaching staff and students. We feel it is important that staff and students are not confronted with a range of barriers and bureaucracy before they can share materials online for learning and teaching.

Nonetheless, because material on UniTube may be accessed by users outside the University of Otago, it is very important that you are confident that you are the owner of that material or that you have the right to make it available to others before you upload it.

Need help?

If you are unsure about whether you can or should upload material, there are a number of Otago guides and resources that can help you (listed on the right).

If you would like assistance with recording video or audio material, please contact the ITS Media Production team.
