a video library for academic videos

(wlp)° is collecting academic videos of each faculty from around the globe.

In our video library, you can find academic videos from many different universities, countries and languages and sort systematically through the videos you are interested in.

You can find embedded videos provided by huge video platforms like YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, but also linked videos from universities and educational institutions. Thus you can search and access many sources from the (wlp)° platform to find the videos of your interest.

It is our aim to provide the best academic videos available in the internet and so we invite you to add your video favourites to the (wlp)° video library. You can upload, embed or link videos and you can easily add metadata like faculty, language or tags to help others identifying the videos they are looking for.

On (wlp)° you can work directly online with the videos: Each video is equipped with tools to make individual notes, to discuss and to share them and you can create topics with the videos in your own workspace

(wlp)° TOPICS

knowledge in focus

The main challenge remains to contextualise and reflect the knowledge we are receiving over the internet.

(wlp)° is not only collecting videos but also connecting them and stimulating discussion and critical reflection about them. With (wlp)° topics each user can set up topic sites to bring together most relevant videos and other information in his area of interest.

We developed several tools for you to set up topic sites: While watching videos, you can make notes and then compile them together with other related material as topics. You can share your topics with friends, colleagues, and partners - and if you publish them, everyone can benefit from your work.

  • create a topic! Go to your workspace or just click the + on the top-right
  • find a guide how to create topics
  • organise your topics on your individual workspace
  • collaborate with (wlp)° and other partners by developing topic sites in targeted collaborations

How can students use (wlp)° topics?

You can use (wlp)° topics for easily creating your presentations, your thesis or dissertation with videos of scientists and scholars from everywhere in the world.

On your topic sites you can discuss your objects of research in the light of their scientific, historical or social context. You can compare opposing theories of leading scientists and scholars from different cultures and ages. Or you can use (wlp)° topics to  develop your own theories and relate them to the current state of research by referring to video lectures, documentaries and recorded experiments.

Be the first publishing your findings or inventions as a (wlp)° topic and see what others think about it. By sharing it in your Social Networks, your friends can see what you are really interested in. And if you invite your fellow students to collaborate on your topics, you can create study and research working groups, to discuss the material and to exchange favourite videos, ideas and information.

How can scientists, scholars and experts use (wlp)° topics? 

You can use (wlp)° topics to publish your work and relate it with videos of outstanding scholars and scientisis in your field.

On (wlp)° topic sites you can publish your latest research results, your lecture series or just a commented list with  "best of" videos in your field and embed your work into an international and interdisciplinary context. You can include videos that illustrate the current state of research in your field, recorded experiments or statistic data that support your theory, or lectures of your colleagues with approving or opposing theories.

Your expertise is needed for identifying most relevant and excellent videos, for estimating the value of new scientific findings, and for classifying new tendencies in science and humanities.  

By sharing your topics with your colleagues and other professionals in your field you can create international scientific working groups and by publishing your topics others can benefit from your knowledge and your experiences.

How can universities use (wlp)° topics?

You can use (wlp)° topics as a showcase to present your activities in science, humanities, and teaching.

On your university topic sites you can publish your video lectures and provide information about new research projects at your university or present successful activities and methods in teaching. 

By creating topic sites also with videos of other Universities you can offer your students the possibility to learn from professors from around the globe and by inviting other universities to your topic sites you can develop targeted collaborations on topics of mutual interest.

How can organisations, institutions or companies use (wlp)° topics?

You can use (wlp)° topics to create awareness about your activities and to reflect your operations in the light of science-based information. 

On your topic sites you can collect most important academic videos and other information in your field and publish them together with your projects. You can highlight innovations and discuss the effects of latest scientific data on your operations to serve your clients, staff or your target group with science based information in your field. 

Your experience is needed to measure scientific theories on practical-based data and to provide universities and scientists with feedback from the ground. By inviting them together with other stakeholders to your topic sites you can organise targeted collaborations and create unique cross sectoral knowledge spots for your field.  

How can journalists use (wlp)° topics?

You can report about (wlp)° topics or use them for your research and your own publications. 

On your topic sites you can collect academic videos and other information that relate with your reports. Once your report is published, your can link it with your topic site and thus provide your recipients with academic background information. 

Browse (wlp)° topics to find out about news and debates in the academic world or to cover new scientific findings and inventions. We are grateful, if you report about (wlp)° topics or link your publications with them - also to increase the number of your recipients!  

(wlp)° topics should be a place to interconnect science and society, to promote rational discourse and to bring together the actors of the civil society in targeted collaborations. Your work is needed to communicate scientific information to the general public, to reflect political decisions in the light of robust scientific data and to critically reflect new discoveries and tendencies in science.

Establishing topic sites in targeted collaborations

(wlp)° is looking for partners interested in elaborating topics in their field of expertise.

On topic sites we are introducing new discoveries and tendencies in science and humanities. In concerted activities, we are gathering experts, organisations, institutions, companies and journalists to commonly develop cross sectoral topics that reflect specific themes from multiple perspectives. And we have a look at what leading scientists from different countries and faculties have to say about actual political themes, to discuss them in the light of ongoing controversies, opposing opinions.

In collaboration with Globalnet21 and other partnering organisations, we are currently initiating international and interdisciplinary debates discussing major issues in the 21st Century. While the world lecture project creates topic sites with academic videos; Globalnet21 initiates webinars related to the particular topic. Additionally, we invite other libraries to link their content, organisations and scholars to participate with their expertise, and media to report about the particular topics. 

All participating actors benefit, as commonly created topics can also be embedded and displayed on their own websites. Thus the contents will be accessible from many different websites to be used in multiple contexts. 

Contact us! - and we will help you with creating topics and connect you with potential partners.

Establishing (wlp)° satellite offices

(wlp)° is looking for partners interested in establishing (wlp)° satellite offices. These offices will represent the project, they will make (wlp)° known among students, lecturers and the general public, translate the (wlp)° website into their languages and support the recording of lectures in their countries.

Strategic partnerships for generating funds

To finance the collaborative activities mentioned, (wlp)° is looking for partners, interested in creating strategic partnerships and applying for funding. We are experienced with Erasmus+ applications and we are particularly happy to act as partners for disseminating your project results.
