Euro 2004: Football and Media Education

A bit late but hopefully still of interest: a retrospective of the 2004 course about the theme of football and media education. Stardom or boredom?
Short videos from teachers for teachers and hopefully some ideas for you to start your own football video work. One example here:

Youtube and High Quality Videos

Since quite a few have asked me about this: Yes, Youtube has now a high quality modus for the video playback. If you upload your video in a good enough quality (at least the specs below) you should have the option to watch the material on higher quality (obviously only if you have a faster internet connection). The difference is quite visible.

Youtube recommends this:
  • MPEG4 (Divx, Xvid) format
  • MP3 audio
  • Video resolution: 480x360 or higher
  • Frame Rate: 24fps or higher
