O365 Glow Video Channel

Another great tool which can be used within Glow is O365 Video. It allows staff with Glow accounts to create video channels and upload video content which can be watched by other Glow members. Within the channel settings, staff can decide who can watch the videos within the video channel.

This tool is a safe way of sharing video content of pupils online as it is a private channel, no adverts appear on videos playing and is in a controlled and monitored environment. It also provides excellent CPD opportunities as you have access to videos from staff and learners across Scotland.

To access the video channel, you must select the icon above from your O365 waffle and you will be taken to the home page which will show the most watched and trending videos on Glow. If you click on channels button at the top of the page, you will find many channels which you can access.

Within the channels area, there is an option to create a new channel (only for staff, not pupils). You must give your channel a name, e.g. LA name, school name, channel name and decide who is allowed to view the content of your channel. Once this is complete, by clicking on the upload button you can add videos to your channel.
