Television on Demand from the BBC

Ever watched a television programme and wished you’d taped it so you could use it – or just part of it – with your pupils in class the following day?

The new on-demand service from the BBC allows you to download programmes to your computer for a period of time (approximately a month) – and you can watch the programmes as many times as you like for seven days after your first viewing. A broadband connection is required.

You need to register with the BBC for the iPlayer service and must download the player/library software itself to your computer.

This is all straightforward and FREE!!!!!

There’s an absolute wealth of fantastic programmes to support teaching and learning making this a definite must-have application for modern, media-rich classrooms.

About Alan Stewart

I'm a teacher who changed direction after teaching visually impaired pupils. I became interested in how technology could assist young people overcome or deal with various disabilities. I've, since, been an Education Support Officer, an ICT Training Support Officer, and have been Coordinator of Highland's Assistive Technology Support Service for the past 20 years. I'm also the proud father of two young boys (2003 & 2008). View all posts by Alan Stewart
