LnuPlay

LnuPlay is the Linnaeus University's new media service/portal with focus on web based production, storage and distribution of video.

To start with we focus on the integration with our Learning platform, Mymoodle. As a teacher you are able to manage video (and sound and images) directly inside your course room. You are able to:

  • upload existing video/sound files/images clips for storage and distribution. The system accepts most of the standard formats for digital video/sound/images and re-code them to a format suitable for all viewers.
  • produce your own movies directly within Mymoodle, for example record your self with the use of a web camera, perhaps as a welcome message or a weekly information letter in video format.
  • make your own screen cast recordings giving a lecture, show how to use a software, commenting a student assignment and so on.

The movies you upload or record are easily accessible from within Mymoodle for reuse in other courses and contexts.

LnuPlay can aslo be used for sound files and images, in the same manners as with video.

play.lnu.se - Our portal

The second part of LnuPlay is the portal, play.lnu.se

This is where you log in to find all the videos that you have produced or uploaded from Mymoodle and gives you the option to further edit them and give the final touches. You are able to...

  • add meta data and perform simpler video editing to trim the beginning and end of a video.
  • create child clips from a video to publish just a section of a longer video.
  • choose different ways to publish your videos by creating play lists and channelse. Play lists may be embedded to a course room in Mymoodle or any web page in the world.
  • produce video by uploading and recording directly from the portal..

A development work in several stages

This is the first stage for LnuPlay. The service, managed by the University Library and Educational Environment, will continue to evolve in cooperation with representatives from the staff once this stage is well established.
