Learning Spaces: Blogs: Video Sharing
Webcasting, Vodcasting, and Vlogging
Webcasting, vlogging, videoblogging, and video sharing are all ways to share video-based content on the web. In most cases, those who share video encourage viewers to respond to their work by adding comments or providing suggestions.
Webcasting or Videocasting. Video recordings can be uploaded to the web and linked from blogs or other websites. These videos may be streamed or downloaded to computers or handheld video devices such as an iPod.
Rather than storing the videos yourself, consider using a service such as YouTube. Go to the Allen County Public Library YouTube Channel for a great example.
Vlogging. Sometimes web-based videos are embedded as the main content of a blog. These are called vlogs.

Video Blog Examples
Some of these examples are dated, but they give you a good idea of the possibilities:
Middle and High School
- IIS Blog Nation - middle school vod and podcasts
- Carleton University Television
- Rooftop Poetry Club, Butler Library
- Tour the Library from Harper College
- YouTube - check out the academic library channels, public library channels and school library channels
- Vimeo - this is a good choice if YouTube is blocked. It's popular with libraries, schools, and nonprofits.
