eLearning Services, TAFE Queensland, provides Videostreaming services via the use of Sonic Foundry's Mediasite software application. This platform allows teachers to reach flexible and distance students, with both live and stored streams, across a low bandwidth Internet connection.
Videostreaming is a free tool for all TAFE Queensland staff to utilise, with videos being accessible 24 X 7, on most devices. Streams can be recorded live or made for use at a later date. There are several ways to create a Videostreaming session. View Videostreaming - Videostreaming - How to Choose a Recording Option to see which is best for you.
There are three main components of the Videostreaming window:
- The video window which provides full audio / visual of the presenter
- The still graphic window which displays PowerPoint and other images to support delivery
- The e-mail facility which allows students to directly e-mail their teacher without having to exit the stream
Below you will find information for presenters and students on the use and application of Videostreaming within a vocational delivery context.

We have developed various Videostreaming information sessions to give users an overview of what streaming is, how it works and how teachers can best utilise this tool.
Users will need to meet the minimum requirements in order to successfully access a Videostreaming session.
