Many educational organisations, schools and teachers are making videos to support online learning. These excellent guidelines based on professional practice should help ensure that the videos are communicate effectively and engage learners.
Having cut my teeth in video production using presenters, shooting lots of talking heads and generally learning how best to use video in learning, I'm not for throwing the this baby out with the bathwater. The talking head is a well-used and respected form of communication.

Welcome to Video for Learning, for the foreseeable future I will be curating resources to further the study and research, practice and discussion of video for learning. Online video; its creation, use and re-use for all stages of learning, will be explored from both pedagogical and technical viewpoints.

Where they provide extra value and contexts I will include older links and resources as well as new and breaking developments. I look forward to comments and feedback.

I feel this superb painting by Wasfi Akab provides an appropriate and thought provoking icon for this collection. (CC licence BY NC ND) https://www.flickr.com/photos/wasfiakab/albums/with/72157622150204355

It seems amazing that over 12,000 ANZACs took cameras to the front despite Lord Kitchener's edict.I had no idea - thanks to the Australian War Memorial for making these images available in the Public Domain

It might be interesting to compare with the use of mobile photography and social media in current conflicts. 
AUSTRALIAN WAR MEMORIAL - To mark the 100 years since Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) fought the Gallipoli campaign of WW1, Alison Wishart explores the remarkable photographic record left by the soldiers. Made possible by the birth of Kodak's portable camera, the photographs give a rare and intimate portrait of the soldier's day-to-day life away from the heat of battle.

I created the Open Content Toolkit wiki to share both contemporary and historical openly licensed content from media archives and collections around the world. The toolkit provides a space to explore, discuss and share examples of the use of open media at all school stages and at all levels of education. It is intended to be a truly Cross Curricular resource. The toolkit is free and open to all with an interest in open resources, media archives, education and the digital humanities.

I hope you find it useful. I welcome any comments and feedback on the resource, especially how it might be improved, or how you have used it.

Over the course of the summer the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision uploaded another 2.000 videos to Wikimedia Commons, the media repository of the online encyclopaedia Wikipedia.

As the article explains, whilst Wikipedia, and Wikimedia Commons are visually rich in images, as far as video is concerned it is now a only .022% Wikipedia content is video content. This is an enormous challenge and cause for concern, especially as video is now becoming as fundamental to learning, if not formal education, as text.

Perhaps we need to make a more concerted effort to upload video to Wikimedia. With the quality and ubiquity of mobile video recording, easy to use editing tools this should not be difficult. Perhaps Wikimedia could make it easier to upload assets, the requirement to use Ogg or WebM may put people off as they are not familiar with the formats, and/or export to Wikimedia, are not options in most video capture export tools.

Perhaps the embedding of Openly licensed video from platform such as Vimeo could be considered to get the ball rolling. Alternatively as videos are uploaded the Wikimedia servers cousl convert to the required format. Is this possible

Rijks Studio from the Rijksmuseum in Amstersdam allows you to view, download and remix of over high resolution ((2500 x 2500 px, 300 dpi) files of 200,000 works in the museum's collection.
You can zoom in to study the images in great detail, sometimes with even better detail than the Google Art Project. And because you can download them it is ideal for educational use.

Because the works are openly licensed and made available in Public Domain you can also use them to create commercial works. There is also awards for the best new 'masterpiece. This online resources demonstrates the value, both in material and intrinsic terms of open content and resources.

Welcome to Open Content and Learning. My aim is to curate and share the some of the most interesting and useful open content on the Web, and also to illustrate how it is being used for learning, at all levels of education, formal and informal.

There has been a significant increase in the quantity of open digital resources available online. This can be attributed to the increased digitisation of cultural artefacts, allied with a global trend towards to openness using Creative Commons licences. This emerging digital landscape is providing innovative opportunities for learning and research.

This resources will also report and comment on the IP and Copyright issues that arise form time to time in this field. To get started I will share some recent developments and resources that I have found interesting and useful together with links to some great archives, collections and repositories.

The Illustration Archive, is a collaboration between humanities specialists and computer scientists at Cardiff University which provides access to a million illustrations from works of literature, philosophy, history and geography that are in the British Library’s collection.

It includes tools to tag, archive, search or simply browse the collection. Also included is a useful introduction to using the images in the classroom http://illustrationarchive.cf.ac.uk/education
