Exploring Shackleton's Hut from LEARNZ on Vimeo.

LEARNZ videos are available:

  • for playing/streaming/embedding exclusively on Vimeo (enabled in 2016 for LEARNZ videos on Vimeo) Note: Vimeo now has adaptive streaming which means video quality continuously alters with your Internet speed.
  • for download or playing/streaming in mp4 format and alternatively for playing/streaming on Vimeo (from 2013 to 2015)
  • for download or playing in mp4 format (from 2012 to 2015)
  • for download or playing in wmv format (up til 2012)

Most computers, tablets and smart phones will play LEARNZ videos automatically in their default browser or using their default video player.

If the videos don't play automatically, we recommend you download and install the latest appropriate software such as:

  • Quicktime 7 or better here or
  • Windows Media Player here

Most desktops and laptops and other devices already have either or both of these installed but may not have the latest versions.
