This poster presentation discusses the rationale of why Singapore went from the broadcasting of educational videos to the production of Video CDs and later to broadband streaming. Digitised videos on Video CDs not only solved the problems of broadcasting but it also brought about greater conveniences in the integration of videos into teachers' lessons. Streaming educational videos online further enhanced the use of the videos. Features of the streaming website are reported in relation to their enhancements to the use of educational videos such as greater access and control of educational videos. We believe that our experiences may be relevant to small countries like Singapore which are exploring ways to better disseminate educational videos to schools.
