This paper will present the development from broadcasted educational television up to the actual use of streaming video and mobile units in eLearning. The paper will discuss the following topics: what can we learn from history? – and what are the new challenges and possibilities in mobile technologies? What we can learn from history is that new technologies provide new didactic possibilities. On the other hand, most of the uses are based on remediation of former formats. Despite the possibilities for interaction and integration, most video in the screen are formatted as traditional broadcasted television. Today the new video technologies can be labelled the three P’s: production, portability, and panorama/3D. The challenge is how to develop new formats and new didactics for the integration of the new technology in learning environments.
