Along with deciding what software to use to produce your video, you should consider how you will deliver your content. You may need to download video files, edit them and then upload them to a streaming service to make them available to students.

Comparing Duke’s streaming services 

Warpwire is a tool dedicated to streaming media. If your course has not only video content, but also audio, images and movies, Warpwire is the best solution. If you edit your own videos in any other tool than Panopto, Warpwire is probably the right choice. Warpwire can also be used to create short videos and screen captures by you and your students. It is possible to create a library associated with a course, but also make it open to anyone with a NetID, which makes it easy to share media across courses and store video content.

Panopto offers a hosting service, as well as editing and recording. Using Panopto you can provide a link to your students and they can view your videos. The links can be distributed through Sakai.  

Cloud recordings in Zoom are not permanent. It is likely that you will use Zoom to record live meetings for your course and possibly to make other short videos. However, if you are making content that you plan to reuse in future semesters, you will need to download your cloud recordings. Zoom does not provide a permanent storage service. Fortunately, Zoom makes this relatively simple, and you can download the files and upload them to Warpwire.

Meeting accessibility requirements  

Students with disabilities must be able to access the video materials. An accessible video includes: (1) captions, (2) a transcript and (3) an audio description. You may be contacted by Duke’s Disability Management System to make your videos more accessible if you have a student needing an accommodation. 

There are other strategies to make your videos more accessible. You can post copies of your slides, script/outline or other digital assets you used during your video recording for students to follow along with your video.
