About Swinburne Commons


Swinburne Commons is the centralised service for the management and distribution of Swinburne digital media.

Contributed items can be easily re-used within the University, or made open access to highlight the research strengths, teaching excellence and unique aspects of Swinburne.

Contribution is open to all Swinburne staff and each resource is moderated before going live.

Publishing to the World (Open access)

Swinburne Commons (Open) - resources are made openly accessible via a number of channels, including YouTube, iTunes U, and the Swinburne Commons site.

  • Intro and Outro:  All open access video/audio resources must use the Swinburne templates, or have the intro and outro signed off by Digital Marketing.
  • Copyright:  Permission must be obtained for all included copyright material before publication.
  • Accessibility:  Videos embedded into top level pages of the Swinburne University of Technology website require accompanying captions and transcripts.

Publishing to the Swinburne community (Swinburne only)

Swinburne Commons (Restricted) - resources are only accessible by Swinburne staff and students. Only logged in users are able to search for and access resources.

Restricting access to a single Canvas/Blackboard unit (Echo360 ALP)

For audiences smaller then the whole of Swinburne - such as a single Canvas/Blackboard unit - you may wish to consider the Echo360 ALP Personal Capture system.

See the Echo360 ALP page on the Swinburne Intranet for more information
