Hi, 

Is there any length limit for video lectures? May I create for example 45min lectures?

While you CAN make a 45 minute video-students don't often like when they are that long. Their attention span often does not make it. Also, another issue with a video that long is the SIZE of the video, in order to be small enough to upload you will have to compress it enough which will likely reduce the quality and make it less enjoyable to watch. I HIGHLY recommend finding places to break it apart. Have a section dedicated to it and go from there.

You will lose them if you try. Plus I think that even for mediation it is nor recommended we go over 20 minutes. Peoples attention span is not that long! 2-10 minutes works for most people. Plus many learn whilst they are commuting - so keeping it short allows them to catch up on some learning on the go. Good luck with your course.

Thanks Tamera,

yes I'll have roughly 100 lectures and %95 of them are around 10 minutes but I've also 2 or 3 sections which will be around 30 min. I'm working on a technical training and really some sections are impossible to cut. That's the reason why I've asked if that's technically possible or not.
