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.
