Video Hosting & Streaming using Planet eStream

If you create and record your own videos and would like to share them with your students we recommend that you upload them to our Planet eStream Service so that they can then be delivered to your students in the most effective manner. Streaming a video file means that your students don’t have to wait for the file to download before being able to play it.

Should you wish to upload video to this service please contact Andrew Walker in the first instance.
