Description & Coverage

There is no question to the fact that online video is as ubiquitous today as any phenomenon of the past. Countless hours of digital video are uploaded to various online video platforms every minute. Faced with the incredible changes underway, it only makes sense for educators of all kinds to not only note the ubiquity that streaming media has gained in the lives of their students, but to embrace and appropriate the technology in their efforts to impart knowledge.

Streaming Media Delivery in Higher Education: Methods and Outcomes is both a snapshot of streaming media in higher education as it is today and a window into the many developments already underway. In some cases, it is a forecast of areas yet to be developed. As a resource, this book serves both as an explication of many practices, including their possibilities and pitfalls, as well as recommendation of the many areas where opportunities for development lie.


The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Didactic Models for Weblectures
  • Education beyond Borders
  • Higher Education in a Virtual World
  • Instructors’ Perceptions of Teaching with Streaming Media in Higher Education
  • Online Business Education in India
  • Public Online Video in Higher Education
  • Streaming Media for Writing Instruction
  • Teaching New Media through New Media
  • Using Digital Stories Effectively to Engage Students
  • Using Video to Bridge Theory and Experience in Cross-Cultural Training
Reviews and Testimonials

"While no one person can grasp everything in New Media-- it is evolving too quickly-- one group can. A group of highly dedicated minds like the authors of this book. My hat is off to them. (However, I will keep my socks on.)

This compilation is a line in the sand. It defines where we are today, and summarizes it in a way that can be absorbed and put to use."

– Frank Chindamo, President and Chief Creative Officer, Fun Little Movies; Adjunct Professor, University of Southern California, School of Cinematic Arts

Selected as a Fall 2011 Shelf-Worthy Academic Title by Baker & Taylor.
