Streaming media are video or audio files which open and play with the click of a link. ETSU’s Flash and Wowza servers permit us to stream live or archived presentations to all computer platforms and to many web-enabled mobile devices. Links to streaming media files can be added to web pages, e-mails, and as quick links in online course sites. In fact, functional links can be incorporated into many document formats, allowing web-based media to open from offline documents and presentations. Streaming video can also be embedded as a frame in a web page, allowing limitless opportunities to incorporate and brand video.
In addition to Windows, Flash, and Wowza streaming media servers operated by ETSU, it is also possible to stream archived videos through ETSU’s YouTube ( www.youtube.com/easttennesseestate) and iTunes U site ( http://itunes.apple.com/institution/east-tennessee-state-university/id384928061#ls=1). Quick links to all of our social media sites, including iTunes U and YouTube, can be found in the upper right corner of the ETSU home page ( www.etsu.edu).
