Activities: MEDIAL Video Streaming Activity
If you face the challenge of your users uploading large video files to
Moodle on a regular basis then the MEDIAL Moodle video streaming plugin
is for you!
MEDIAL is a software application that you can host on our own
network/hardware. A Windows Server is required. The application can also
be Cloud Hosted if required.
This plugin allows Teachers / Lecturers to upload video or audio files to MEDIAL using a specific MEDIAL Video Activity which then creates a link to the video or audio file on the course page
Users can upload video and audio within Moodle with the content being hosted on MEDIAL and not Moodle. MEDIAL then does all of the hard work in terms of transcoding media for different devices types. It also ensures that the transcoded content is then streamed back to any device that tries to play it back
The plugin is built using Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) so users are able to manage their media content once uploaded as well
Also available is the MEDIAL Assignment Activity Plugin which allows Teachers to set Video Assignments that Students can reply to with video responses
