|Project:||Conference Organizing Distribution Support Modules|
What do you all think about using the Media module for all Session Resources?
We could have one content type called Session Resource and use the Media Module to allow for all types of formats. Utilizing the oEmbed module we could allow session Videos, PDF's, Powerpoints or photos of the session. With oEmbed this allows the embedding of different 3rd party providers (youtube, vimeo, slideshare, flikr, scribd) without having to download each provider module. In addition this may encourage presenters to post links to external resources prior to the session.
In my use case many faculty do want to share their slides but do not want them to be downloadable. Many of them already have a Slideshare account were they post most of their slides. oEmbed and the Media module seems to have a lot of support and is the future for handling files.
