From videocassette to video stream: Issues involved in re‐purposing an existing educational video

By Kerry Shephard, Roger Ottewill, Peter Phillips and Richard Collier


Conventional video recordings can be converted into video streams but the process can be complex and problematic. The authors’ experience of re‐purposing an existing video, Back Care for Health Professionals, for streaming is used to illustrate what was involved and to highlight the important issues. Financial, legal, technical and pedagogic issues are examined
