Marketing & Communication is frequently receiving questions regarding the use of videos. The most important questions, answers and tips are summarized below.
Uploading videos (and placing them on UT-websites)
You can include (embed) videos in the WebHare-websites of the UT. This is also possible with news articles in the news- and event system NEO within WebHare. Make sure that the video that you are planning to include is uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo. You can use your own free account for doing so. Alternatively, you can provide a UT-video to the central editorial office (firstname.lastname@example.org). The video will then be published to the YouTube/Vimeo channel of the UT.
The next step is to add the video to your website by clicking on the filmstrip-button () in the editor. There is a detailed explanation of how to add videos to text pages available here. Another way of placing videos is to make use of widgets (small blocks with additional information at the bottom of your website). You can find more information about placing widgets here.
Where to find UT-videos?
UT-videos are available on the following channels:
- The UT’s Youtube and Vimeo channels: all new videos are posted here
- Image Archive Marketing & Communication and UT Nieuws (login with m-nr required): limited archive
- Image archive: public historical archive of the UT
