What are Additional Resources?
Additional Resources are print based materials that accompany the majority of VEA Group produced videos, and some of our Australian and international producer partners videos.
Additional Resources include a range of activities that stimulate thinking and discussion amongst learners, and most of all are designed to help you save valuable lesson planning time!
Each of the Additional Resources is unique and has been created to cover a range of activities from research based tasks and homework, to questions and quizzes from the learning outcomes that were covered in the video.
To see if a video has Additional Resources available and to access them, login/register to your VEA website account, find the videos page by searching for either the product code, or title and find the black 'download resource' button located underneath the video preview and/or image. If a video doesn't have additional resources then this button will not be visible.
vLearn Digital Streaming
vLearn is VEA’s video streaming platform for education and training, providing you with instant and unlimited access to your choice of videos for a one, two or three year licence period.
Video streaming is a method of delivering digital video files across the Internet. Videos play in your web browser or mobile/tablet devices, in much the same way as you watch YouTube videos. When you load the vLearn Player in your browser and click play, the video file is sent in a steady stream of small portions (hence the term ‘streaming’).
The vLearn Player is the video player component of vLearn. The vLearn Player includes a range of features which make it useful for both teachers and learners, including:
- Easy playback within your web browser – support for all major browsers on PC and Mac
- Full support for mobile and tablet devices
- LMS integration via linking or direct video embedding
- Ability to play specific chapters
- Ability to create, name and manage custom clips
- Can be easily shared with all staff, students and employees in your organisation
The vLearn range currently consists of over 4,000 videos and counting. The range is constantly expanding as we acquire new videos.
When you see this symbol: asset to be added in search results and subject lists, it means the program is available in vLearn. If your favourite title isn’t included, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and the vLearn team will get it digitised for you
You do not need a password to play vLearn videos. Your unique vLearn Player URL contains the video and no login or other form of authentication is required. The URL is specific to your institution, and can be shared with any staff and students in your organisation.
It is however an important condition of the vLearn Streaming Licence Agreement that the vLearn Player URL must only be shared with staff and students in your organisation and may only be published within an authenticated environment, such as a learning management system that requires login, or an intranet.
Yes they can. This works in just the same way as projecting your computer screen. The vLearn Player also has a full-screen option, which expands the video to your full screen size.
The vLearn player is intelligent and will adapt to the environment it is being used in. The player takes into consideration the device you are accessing the video on and also your bandwidth and streams you a compatible version.
Licensing Rights and Restrictions
Each time you purchase a vLearn Streaming Licence, you must agree to the vLearn Streaming Licence Agreement – which outlines important rights, restrictions and responsibilities for the duration of the license: 1, 2 or 3 years.
