We are using iPads to create movies with children in the class and embedding these onto the class blog. We are currently using a pro vimeo account which only allows us to upload 5 at a time. This is taking a while to upload. Is there a quicker way? What are other schools using to batch/bulk upload movies to embed on blogs?

    Hey there -

    The best thing we have done since deploying iPads at our school was to set up self hosted WordPress blogs on our school server (Where we also host our school website).  Have a look at www.selwynridge.school.nz/room3/ for an example.  Having the blogs self hosted mean that uploading movies is super quick.  We can upload a 2-3 minute movie in about 30 seconds.

    We are using YouTube as this connects with our school Google accounts. Also it provides great teachable moments about using YouTube safely. I turn off comments on the videos, as we embedd all videos on class on student blogs and we want viewers to comment through these blogs. When we embed we also make sure that Show suggested videos is not selected. 

    Would love to know if anyone else uses YouTube and what other steps they take to ensure students stay safe.
