If you wish to host videos promoting your work or your courses online, EPFL offers the ‘Videos & Streaming’ service, using the SWITCHtube platform.
Similar to YouTube, but intended for Swiss universities, SWITCHtube provides EPFL units (labs, etc.) with channels for broadcasting videos. These videos can then be embedded on web pages or viewed directly on the SWITCHtube platform.
It is possible to restrict access to these channels in a fairly detailed manner
- to EPFL employees or students
- to those of Hautes Écoles (= with SwitchAAI identifiers)
- to a small group of people
- to external people (see how to create an account for somebody).
Note that only a ‘private’ channel guarantees the confidentiality of the data.
SWITCHtube guarantees compliance with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)
The service is not intended to host scientific material (research data, filmed experiments, …).
