Many practitioners and/or other learning provider stakeholders may not be aware that homemade YouTube videos are not allowed to have just any old song playing along to the images or scenes that are displayed. In some cases, they only get to realize it when YouTube takes down the video they had uploaded so enthusiastically.
To prevent that from happening they should be using music that is actually royalty free. And that is something they can find on the Stock Music Boutique website.
I'm an eLearning Adviser specializing in stimulating and supporting innovation in learning via eBooks, eMagazines, blogs (including audio versions), online TV, interactive resources, forums, workshops, conferences and face2face consultations. Evaluating and becoming familiar with sustainable and new technologies allows me to respond to the needs of learning providers from a position of experience rather than 'hearsay'. Supported learning providers, in the northwest of England (UK), can contact me for FREE consultations. Based at Lancaster University I work for the JISC Regional Support Centre - Northwest.
