You’ve jumped in — a student or team is creating video, you’ve got a highlight package or an interview piece edited and ready to share. But questions remain: Where, when, how?
Do you host via an augmented reality app? Post videos to the cloud and embed QR codes in your book? Mass produce a DVD? Where do YouTube and social sharing fit into it all?
Options have changed a great deal since 2011. At first, we worked as an assembly line to tuck a DVD into each book. Then we used Google Drive and Dropbox, linking to them with printed QR codes.
When our district consolidated in 2014, we moved to augmented reality app, Aurasma — which would play synced videos when a student running the app pointed their phone at a spread with embedded content.
As many anticipated, support for the app dwindled after it was purchased by HP, and discontinued, rendering all of embedded video inaccessible.
Tesserae’s video content now lives where many others post theirs: YouTube. Granted, it might not be around 20 years from now either, but it’s the best solution for now. Commenting can be turned off, if that’s a concern. Need a YouTube alternative? Take a look at Vimeo.
Finally, we’re happy to share. You can see our current and past content at youtube.com/tesseraeybk.
