ViTAL - video in education - HEA/ALT Special Interest Group

ViTAL is a group of educators who share an interest in using digital video and media in tertiary education in the UK and beyond.


ViTAL was founded in 2011 as a Special Interest Group (SIG) of the Association for Learning Technology and had two sessions at the ALT Conference last week.

On Monday we held thewell-attended Video in Education SIG Meeting. Notes to follow but here is a list of some of the areas we discussed;

If you have not done so already please take a few minutes (literally) to fill out our very quick pre-meeting ViTAL-SIG Survey of what are the big issues this year.

Clive Young, one of the ViTAL founders was interviewed by Leon Cych of the Learn for Life initiative, based in London about his interests in educational video and the various projects he has worked on and Clive explains why he finds video so educationally interesting.
