This talk will report on my experience of creating a variety of types of video learning resources and disseminating them, mainly through YouTube where my channel has over 300 subscribers and over 100,000 views.

The videos have been created either using Camtasia screen capture software or by videoing lecture sessions. I will discuss some of the techniques for enhancing the video in pedagogically useful ways and some of the production issues for ensuring high quality production. Then I will discuss the dissemination of the videos. I have done this mainly through the OnlineQDA web-site and through YouTube. I will discuss some of the issues of producing YouTube videos and uploading them, such as length, sound quality, metadata and titles and some of the feedback they have engendered.

I will conclude by arguing that YouTube is a way of disseminating our outputs in a way that can extend the profile of the University and can promote our reputation for good quality!
