ANU TV on YouTube

ANU TV hosts content that tells the ANU story:

  • researcher, educator, student and alumni profiles
  • research developments and announcements
  • public lectures, debates, concerts and seminars, and
  • events.

In order to get your content onto ANU TV contact the ANU Communications & Engagement Multimedia team. Files can be sent via file sharing or hard drive. We recommend the use of AARnet Cloudstor (a web service available to all university staff and students), create an account at Cloudstor.

When we receive the file we will "top, tail & super" your video with the appropriate ANU branding, perform quality control and accuracy checks, and adjust video and audio settings as required.


Every video file should be clearly labelled and be accompanied by a document file outlining the title, video description, tags and a thumbnail image to accompany the video on YouTube.  A separate talent release form for all speakers is also required. Please label your CD or Hard Disk Drive before you send it to us with return instructions (we receive many of these every day).

Video title

Keep this to a maximum of 55 characters and make it descriptive and engaging e.g. The Miseries of Middle Age rather than Keynote address at National Psychology Week forum held at ANU.

Video description

The first paragraph should be a simple explanation of the video. Keep descriptions under 200 words. Make sure ANU is mentioned somewhere in the intro paragraph and keep text in present form:

e.g. Will men inexplicably buy a convertible, grow a ponytail and date women in their 20′s? Will women suffer horribly from menopause and empty nest syndrome and hit the Valium? What does it mean to be middle age - is it misery, or is that a myth? As part of The Australian National University's involvement with National Psychology Week, a panel of experts tackle the issues.

Moderated by Genevieve Jacobs - Presenter, afternoon program, 666 ABC Canberra Expert panel: Associate Professor Michael Platow -Social psychologist, Research School of Psychology, ANU Dr Christine Phillips -Senior lecturer on social factors and health, ANU Medical School Ms Suzi Keser -PhD candidate with research focused on occupational stress in middle age Dr Ross Wilkinson - Relationships and attachments through life, Department of Psychology, ANU Dr Tim Windsor - Path through life project, Centre for Mental Health Research, ANU Professor Don Byrne - Stress and its relationship to illness, Department of Psychology, ANU


Tags provide metadata for the video and ensure it is found when people do internet and YouTube searches for things other than the video's title. In the example below the tags contain every term we could think of that might be relevant to people looking for a video that was about the psychological aspects of middle age, plus some institutional and personal tags (ANU, the speakers). The more tags you can think of, the better.

e.g. stress, occupational stress, healthcare, health, mental health, psychology, midlife crisis, middle age, social health, national psychology week, 666ABC, Genevieve Jacobs, Don Byrne, Michael Platow, Christine Philips, Suzi Keser, Ross Wilkinson, Tim Windsor, Research School of Psychology, ANU, The ANU, Australian National University, discussion, Canberra, education.

Thumbnail image

Please include an engaging thumbnail image that references your subject matter. This can be a screen grab or stock image (check copyright), please avoid images of a speaker at podium. Thumbnails are searchable metadata, the more engaging the image is the more engagement you will have with the content.
