Via Library Journal and Alexander Street Press, an interesting talk on the growing integration of media into the curriculum through "embedded videos", "playlists" and other means. The focus of the talk is the growing use of educational video in libraries. From the Libary Journal article:

[Panelist Stephen] Rhind-Tutt explained that, with more video available for educational use (rather than just entertainment), online delivery is more important than ever. He described three basic methods of buying and managing video resources: library hosted; centrally hosted title by title; or a centrally hosted complete collection.

He also discussed technical issues, such as high definition video; advances that mean no need for dedicated software; and access to higher bandwidth networks via devices such as iPads and cell phones.

The full video is available in the webcast archive.
