Video streaming technology enables video content, held on the web sites, to be streamed via the web. We report the implementation and evaluation of video streaming in an undergraduate nursing program in a metropolitan university in Australia. Students (n = 703) were emailed a survey with a 15% response rate. We found that 91% (n = 74) of respondents stated that video streaming assisted their learning. Forty-six percent(n = 50) of students had difficulty accessing video streaming (particularly at the beginning of the study period). Over a 97-day period there were 8440 “hits” to the site from 1039 different internet protocol (IP) addresses. There were 4475 video streaming sessions undertaken by users. Video streaming was used for reviewing previously attended lectures (52%, n = 56), examination preparation (34%, n = 37), viewing missed lectures (27%, n = 29) and class preparation (9%, n = 10). Our experience with the introduction of video streaming has met with general enthusiasm from both students and teaching staff. Video streaming has particular relevance for rural students.
