Learning in motion: the BBC Motion Gallery [Guest post]

February 17th, 2011 at 09:02

We recently had the chance to trial Box of Broadcasts – a BBC subscription service enabling staff and students to record and watch BBC programmes. Chris Middleton, Head of Academic Services, Information Services, tells us about another service, the BBC Motion Gallery, in this Guest Post:

The BeatlesThrough a JISC arrangement, the University has access to the BBC Motion Gallery, a rich resource of educational film encompassing 70 years of BBC content. It’s different from BoB as BoB is whole programmes while the Motion Gallery offers clips of various kinds in offline formats (e.g., .wmv).  The JISC service allows all staff and students of subscribed institutions to access this vast collection of clips for use in presentations, lectures, and coursework.

The BBC Motion Gallery is accessed via the eLibrary Gateway and can be searched by keyword, by subject category, or you can find quick inspiration through a list of most searched topics. You can also go straight to https://jisc.bbcmotiongallery.com/Secure/default.aspx (and authenticate by selecting University of Nottingham and entering username and password).

For an ABC of contrasting examples:

Art – Monet’s water lily lake

Beatles – receiving silver hearts from Harold Wilson

Carbon storage – computer graphic
