Bildungsmedien.tv (BMTV) is an online video library of the Vienna University Library operated on behalf of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research (BMBWF Medienservice (media service of the Federal Ministry)). Bildungsmedien.tv enables Austrian schools and institutions of adult education to stream films in class.
It currently offers more than 2,000 audio-visual media (educational films, documentaries, videos, DVDs, DVD-ROMs, audio files, image series) from 21 subject areas online. All media have been evaluated by active teachers, who also prepared them didactically and added additional material, such as worksheets, interactive accompanying material or lesson plans.
The online video library is available to teachers free of charge. Following the initial registration via the Bildungsmedien.tv website, they can use the available media in full-length for teaching.
As an alternative to the online streaming version, schools can also use Bildungsmedien.tv as a real-time solution (independent of the Internet) on multiple workstations using the EDUskater® box. For further information about the EDUskater® box, please go to Bildungsmedien.tv.
Due to copyright reasons, Bildungsmedien.tv is currently only available at Austrian schools and institutions of adult education, as well as for students of teacher education programmes. If you have any questions or would like to register school students/university students for the service, please contact the AG AV-Medien im Unterricht (working group for audio-visual media in teaching)..
