When creating a Media Collection activity you can choose from 2 different types.
- Use this to create a collection where you and your students can contribute media items to galleries that are not assessment related
- Use this to create a collection where students will be submitting media items as part of an assessment
There are two types of Media Galleries:
theBox Gallery: Galleries are created in theBox and all items added to the gallery are stored in theBox. Videos are transcoded so that they are available for streaming within the web browser.
- YouTube Gallery: This type of gallery allows users to search for existing videos in YouTube and organise them within a gallery. Users cannot upload media items.
