UniTube: Retirement of Service

Unitube is reaching the end of its service and will not be available beyond the end of 2018. We strongly encourage users to migrate their media to other hosting platforms such as Otago Podcasts, Otago Capture or external hosting services such as YouTube or Vimeo. For students of MART333 in 2018: Unitube is still available for you to upload your assignments to and you should follow the instructions provided by your teaching staff. If you require any assistance on migrating content or selecting a new hosting provider please contact the ITS 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.
