Often the website is our first introduction so it better be good!
Below is a list of mostly free tools that we have used in the past or other departments have told us work well.
Got a source you like that is not listed here you want to share? Please share!
Do you have a muliti-page PDF that you would like to keep that way but also want to link to a specific page in the PDF? The quickest and easiest way is to just append the page number to the end of your web address like this: #page=<pagenum> When you click on the link below you will automatically go to page 29 of this document.

One of the best alternatives for embedding your PDFs in a webpage is issuu.com and now you can link to a specific page in your document by "clipping" the content. This video will show you how to clip.
Below are links to sites that allow you to post your content. Many of these are both video, photo and music sharing and most of all of them supply embed codes so that you can insert them into your web pages using the HTML snippet command in Adobe Contribute.

YouTube is by far is the best video hosting service available because of it's accessibility options. It does not require additional plugins to be installed on most computers and will play on most mobile devices. It has free captioning services that work fairly well and will translate into 50 different languages. It also has easy sharing and embedding capabilities enabling your video to reach more people.
LMC has their own youtube account with people who have already subscribed to the video feed. If you want your video posted on the LMC youtube channel please contact the LMC web administrator. Otherwise you can easily start your own channel and link it to your website for a more specific group of followers.
Eventually LMC will have their own account with EDU stream and when that is live we will have a link here. Until then please use youtube or one of the other video sharing sites listed below. Remember that you must not make video your only method of instruction. You must provide a way for a student to understand the content of your material regardless if they can view your video or not.
