Sharing media within your teaching

Everyone has access to their own My Media section within Course Resources where you can upload your own content and share it within the modules that you teach on, the system used is easy and secure.

Sharing media within your teaching and learning is a great way of providing the students with an increased experience of their studies. Adding media can inspire and engage the learners by getting them to question key issues within their studies, enabling interactive discussion throughout the module. As well as providing them with an innovative and dynamic way of learning.

Within Media Gallery, as well as uploading your own media, you can search through the university’s ever growing Shared Repository of media content. Here you can search topics from study skills to specific areas within your course to see what others have already created around your chosen topic.

All media within the Shared Repository is available for anyone one to use and is an expanding resource tool for academics. If you find there isn’t a media source that fits with your chosen area please do get in touch with the Learning Enhancements TEL media team, who can assist you with getting any ideas you have for media creation off the ground.

If you create your own media content that you have uploaded to Media Gallery and believe that it would benefit other colleagues in several programmes around the university, please contact your Media Adviser who can add the content to the Shared Repository.

If you would like any further help or guidance with using Media Gallery and the Shared Repository, see the guides below or contact Learning Enhancement’s Media team at tel@derby.ac.uk
