Publish to the world

We want to see a lot of media published on LnuPlay. Your video will be an important part of what we showcase to the world, so don't hesitate to publish your work publicly, but consider the quality!

Publish to the world

In order to be able to publish your media to the rest of the world, your media (video, audio or image) must be placed into one of the many categories found at the portal

The privelegies to publish to a category is handled by your faculty. If you, as a teachers, want to publish within categories that is connected to your work, please contact your local ICT pedagogue at your faculty. (see a list of ICT-pedagogues here).

Things to remember

Be thourough when you fill out the meta data about your media.

Give it a good title and a description that makes sense, select the subject/s that the media can be sorted under and enter some common search phrases that viewers might use to find this kind of material. If you can't find a proper alternative for Meta data, please contact the ICT pedagogue at your faculty.

Keep your recordings short and sweet

Try to keep your recording under the 15 min mark. Your viewers will loose focus if the video is too long. It is better to divide your presentation/lecture in to shorter clips. This also makes it easier to re-use the material in other contexts.

The graphical profile of Lnu

When your video gets published it will automatically receive the Lnu intro in its beginning. This helps build the brand of Lnu, but it is also important that you try to follow the graphical identity of the university when ever possible. You can do so by using Lnu templates for Powerpoint and Word.

Avoid large blocks of text! No one will be able to read it anyway. Instead, focus on headlines and key words with a reasonble size.

The copy treaty

When you publish media like this, the normal copy treaty no loger applies. This means that your media in no way may contain material that isn't your own, or, that you have been given a clearly stated right to use. Read more about this under "Copyright". It is recommended that you use images, audio, music and so on that has a Creative Commons licens attached to it. You may find suitable resources through the search engine CC Search. Just make sure that you state the correct CC license and link back to the origianl. It is you, as a publishing staff, that is responsible for adhering to the copyright!
