Video and multimedia resources

Videos and multimedia are a useful way of communicating ideas and concepts which make learning engaging and insightful. It makes it easier to digest study content at one's own pace and recall new knowledge better. Many web search engines allow a video specific search, however beware that online material often loses copyright information

It is best to use resources which have clear Creative Commons licences or Terms of Use which enable Deakin to use the material. Never link to or embed material which is clearly in breach of copyright. Don't use commercial products unless Deakin has a subscription, or you are able to purchase the rights to the resource.
