Video for learning

The use of videos in courses is increasing. You can produce your own videos or share videos from others. Umu Play is the media service at Umeå university focusing on web-based production, storage and distribution of video.

If you are curious about working with video there are many opportunities to do so. For example you can record from your own computer or book a service and a studio where an ICT instructor guides you through the process.

Umu Play in the learning platform

Umu Play is integrated in Canvas at Umeå university. This means that you can use Umu Play in the learning platform. When you are logged in you have a menu alternative called "My media" where all your recordings in Umu Play can be found. You can easily publish your videos to a course room.
