The f-list knows all!  
So, my husband created this really amazing powerpoint keynote presentation about the Hero's Journey for his English classes, complete with relevant movie clips and mood music (I know, he is a freak when it comes to this stuff! But it is REALLY cool.)

He planned to upload it to his school district provided web site for the kids to access and d/l there. I believe he converted the whole thing to a quicktime video, so 1)they could not copy/paste from it and 2) they would have to actually go through each. and. every. slide. The problem? His finished video is more than 200mb in size. The school apparently only permits files of 10mb or less to be uploaded. He needs someplace, preferably free, where he could upload this and the kids could access it for downloading, and he may want to mess around with a webpage for it because he's gotten all excited about iWeb, or something. I don't know. LJ is as web-savvy as I get.

Any recommendations?

SendSpace.com will host a file of up to 300mb for free. That's where I put my vids up for the first week or so, since it counts hits and then I'll move it over to my more permanent host.

The ones I see more commonly are sendspace.com and megaupload.com. I think they both support pretty big files.

Tell him to test it ahead of time, though, whereever he uploads it. Some of them (like megaupload) use questionable pop-up ads, like dating services that often include inappropriate photos. Depending on the age of his students and if they are going to be downloading it on school computers, it could raise some eyebrows.

I'd love to see his presentation, it sounds awesome! I used to teach a class on the Hero's Journey quuuite a few years ago, it's such a brilliant topic.
