Upload a short video of your best lesson so students from across the country can learn from you.

We're building a video library of great revision lessons, from teachers across the country to help connect people to great teaching.

We want to give every 13-18 year old in the UK access to a huge choice of curriculum focused mini-lessons which can help them with revision or to catch up on some subjects that they can't remember or might have missed. We also think parents could benefit too.

To thank teachers for their efforts, this year we will send a mobile broadband starter pack to every teacher who uploads a lesson to O2 Learn, to help them, or one of their students get online.

Each package includes unlimited access to thousands of Wi-Fi hotspots and 1Gb data access pre-loaded. This enables teachers to get online when out of the classroom. And helps students, who don't have access broadband at home, get online to study.

We know that filming your lesson can be a little scary, so we have created a short video of our own to help you out.

Remember The 3 Golden Rules
  • Keep it short
  • Use visuals
  • Talk slowly
Tips:
  1. Start with an opening line that tells us what the lesson's about.
  2. Keep your sentences short, all the way through.
  3. Give a handy learning technique. Like an analogy, an image, a rhyme.
  4. Use an exercise or a challenge to recap everything at the end.
  5. Keep it to five minutes. If you can't fit it all in, try splitting it into two topics.
  6. You'll need parents' permission if your students are on camera. Here's a form to help you.
  7. Download a poster with all these film making tips and print it out for your classroom wall here.
Technical things to know:
  1. Your film needs to be smaller than 1GB.
  2. And it should be in one of these formats: WMV, MPG, MPEG, AVI, MP4, FLV, MOV, MOOV, ASF.
  3. You don't have to use a microphone or editing software. It does help though.
  4. And don't make it any longer than ten minutes.

First of all, you'll need to register. Then:

Technical things to know:
  1. Tell us what it's about: subject, title, key words (very important as it'll help students search through the library) comments and specifications.
  2. Draft a 140 character tweet for your video if you'd like us to promote it for you.
  3. Upload your video on the next page.
  4. Fill in your school's details so we can enter you for the award.

Your video won't appear straightaway as we need to moderate it first.

We asked them. So you'd know what to concentrate on. Here's what they came up with.

We make sure the site is properly moderated.

Our O2 Learn (Learning Champions) are here to check that the videos on O2 Learn are suitable and accurate. They're qualified teachers and are specialists in the subjects they moderate for us.

We're working with the SSAT (The Specialist Schools and Academies Trust), which is coordinating a group of qualified teachers in specialist subjects to check the lessons for accuracy. We call them the Learning Champions. Each lesson that's watched by a Learning Champion is marked. They're given an Approve Video icon if they're entirely accurate or an Approve Video but with Issues icon if they're largely accurate but have added constructive comments (designed to help students). If a lesson's not accurate we'll contact the teacher about amending the video or removing it altogether. Please email support if you have any questions.
