Build Your Own “YouTube” – PhpMotion


A couple months ago I saw a presentation where a teacher was using student created screen capture videos to help them learn math concepts. What caught my attention was the fact that they were sharing them on what appeared to be a “private” YouTube-like service. After further investigation I learned the site was using an application titled phpMotion.  This OpenSource application allows you to create your very own video file sharing service. This can be set up within your school network for complete secure access or opened up to the rest of the planet…if you wish.

Note: This application works in conjunction with a few other OpenSource applications, so installation is a bit more involved then, say, a Moodle or Wordpress install.
