Content


There are three types of videos for each topic:

Submission to the Project


All videos must be embedded in the wiki. To do this, embed on a video sharing service like Youtube, Google Video, or Teacher Tube. If you do not wish your video to be publicly searchable, you may create a private PhotoBucket Account. It must be embedded under your topic heading with the following information underneath it: (you may copy the following template)

Insert video Above
Title - Insert the title here.
Summary - Up to a 50 word summary of your video. (This should make someone want to watch the video.)
URL - Insert the direct hyperlink to this video (copy the url from the address bar), unless you're using photobucket
Producer - Your first name, last initial
Location - School and Country
Outsourced Video Segment producer - Insert the first name, last initial, school and country of the student who provided you with the video. This should be credited in full MLA format at the bottom of the wiki, but in brief under the video.

Copyright and Citations


Creative Commons

All materials must be creative commons licensed including music, photographs, and other video. This is for your own protection. Great sources of music are the podsafe music network (you must attribute and hyperlink to the source) and the Owl Music Search under the creative commons website. The creative commons website and the WikiMedia Commons are also great sources of creative commons licensed materials. Remember, you must cite all sources of your materials. This includes the hyperlink. (You may choose to use Google Notebook or del.icio.us to track these.)

MLA

We are using MLA as our standard citation and services like Citation Machine will help you with this.

Where do credits go?

  1. On the wiki - All citations must be at the bottom of a wiki page under the title of your document or section in order of citation. The heading should say "Citations."
  2. At the end of the film - Additionally, all citations should be in the credits at the end of the film. The credits DO NOT COUNT as part of the length of the final video.

Final Movie Clip

A lower quality smaller version must be embedded in the wiki. (This keeps page load times down.)
