Protecting The IP When Using Video For Teaching
I have been building online learning for over 15 years, mainly in the legal space providing professional development for lawyers. I have always wanted to use interactive video as a resource but have worried about protecting the IP in the videos and also getting some real analytics around interactions with the video.
One of the key reasons VidVersity exists is to protect your IP. Videos have been around in the learning space for many years, but delivering them in a learning management system is often difficult for two reasons.
1. Wrapping SCORM around your course if the video is longer than a few minutes is often impossible. The video is simply too large and therefore you cannot get it into an LMS unless it is an external link.
2. The problem with an external link to a video usually means the video is not tracked as part of the SCORM analytics and often the video is not protected. The video is loaded in either an external or internal hosting solution, both of which are expensive and often do not have the necessary security to protect the IP.
It is really difficult to secure your video AND get analytics.
We have worked so hard to solve both these problems. All the assets such as images, PowerPoints, documents are protected inside the SCORM file and then the video sits in our secure AWS server. The video cannot be downloaded or the URL obtained and the viewing of the video including all the clicks on resources, moving through slides is recorded to be sent back to your LMS.
This means you can really ramp up interactive video as a genuine learning experience in any LMS whilst protecting the IP.
