The Open Student Television Network (OSTN) launched in April 2005, and it has signed up a wide array of schools in the past few months: the network now claims 30 member schools, with access at 208 institutions." the idea is to provide a distribution channel for student productions. "The launch of these broadband channels parallels an explosion of amateur TV and film content on the web, fueled by the ever-dropping cost of producing a professional-looking product." OK, so what we're waiting for now is the anti-video backlash: articles complaining that the files are too large, that video is inaccessible, that the content might be harmful, that the videos violate copyright, that they are not quality videos or quality education - the usual.
