YouTube is a free video sharing website that makes it easy to watch online videos. People with a Google account can create and upload their own videos to share with others. Originally created in 2005, YouTube is now one of the most popular sites on the Web, with visitors watching around 6 billion hours of video every month.
Rockcliffe’s YouTube Channel
Rockcliffe manages two different YouTube brand pages:
Rockcliffe University Consortium, and
Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education
Both contain both uploaded content (such as Inside the Avatar’s Studio) and playlists of Rockcliffe content by members of our community volunteering at various events (such as VWBPE).
Create Your Own Experience
Rockcliffe Professional Members can contribute video to the YouTube brand pages so long as the member owns the rights to the video. Any video contributed will also be archived at Rockcliffe TV to ensure there are appropriate back-ups available.
The YouTube channel is also available for live streaming of events.
Professional Members can request having video archived, published, or a request to stream live by submitting a request through the myRockcliffe Membership Portal.
As a general rule, Rockcliffe reserves streaming on YouTube for video that is educational, forums, conferences, discussions, and training related. Video that is strictly of a gaming nature can be streamed on Twitch and archived upon request.
New video for publication on YouTube, whether it is pre-made or there is a request for live streaming, will be peer reviewed prior to being allowed to be uploaded or recorded.
Use of Rockcliffe’s YouTube channels does not require a Google Account.
