100 ways to use a VLE – #69 Access to a Webcam Stream

Though many may consider a webcam video stream somewhat antiquated, they are still well used for many different purposes. There are many different webcan streams out there that can be used for learning or to enhance a topic of some kind.

Though an easy option is to just add a link to a webcam via the VLE, some streams allow you to embed the video (or image) and this can then be embedded into the VLE.

Running your own webcam and embedding the feed into the VLE is another option. Certainly useful for scientific experiments or for animal care courses.
