I first started uploading video clips of lessons in level 1 PE and social responsibility classes, it works really well as the students can see how they act from an outsiders point of view - as often they only see it from their own point of view! Google drive is a great place to store and share your clips as you can really limit who can view/comment/edit the content - as opposed to other sites such as youtube and vimeo. Google drive can play:
- WebM files (Vp8 video codec; Vorbis Audio codec)
- .MPEG4, 3GPP and MOV files - (h264 and mpeg4 video codecs; AAC audio codec)
- .AVI (MJPEG video codec; PCM audio)
- .MPEGPS (MPEG2 video codec; MP2 audio)
- .FLV (Adobe - FLV1 video codec, MP3 audio)
You can also upload files up to 10GB in size (although the free storage amount is 5GB)
Here are the simple steps to get your content in the cloud.....
1) Make sure you are logged into your google apps account, and you have edited and exported/saved your video to 'desktop' or somewhere you can find it easily.
2) In google drive click on the disk with the arrow on it and it will give you the options for uploading a file.
4) The file upload will start and you will be able to see the progress of the file - you can minimise this window and continue working by clicking the minus sign in the top right corner - it will still upload
5) When the upload is complete you can share with your audience and organise it into the appropriate folder.
