Recovering from the 2011 Faculty Academy this year has been better/easier than other years – Because it was so good. We implemented a new system of streaming ( and it has the advantage of directly uploading to YouTube. Depending on your account, the videos will either be broken up into 15 minute segments, or will remain the original length. It depends on how long you have had a YouTube account and what “standing” your account is in (any copyright violations?).

Based on the length of the videos from Faculty Academy, it’s not a bad thing to have them broken up in smaller more digestible chunks. Not that all of our speakers weren’t SUPER compelling 😉

The other nice touch of having the direct YouTube connection is that a playlist is automatically created if the videos are broken up. So, without too much fuss you can watch the “chunks” one after the other. If you decide to take a break, you can pick up where you left off quite easily.

So here are the videos, embedded as playlists from Faculty Academy 2011:
