MediaSite is a lecture-capture platform that allows instructors to create digital recordings of multimedia-rich presentations. MediaSite records everything instructors say, show, and demonstrate with little or no interaction required, and it allows students to switch between multiple views when watching.
Getting started How do I get started?
First, determine the context in which you will use MediaSite. MediaSite is available for capturing lectures in three main ways.
- Built-in Classroom Capture: Certain classrooms are equipped with a built-in lecture-capture system, which allows for automated scheduled recordings. You can pre-schedule ahead of time when you want your lectures to be captured, if you are using one of these classrooms.
- Desktop and Mobile Capture: The desktop version of the MediaSite system allows you to capture a video by using your own computer or mobile device. The video is uploaded directly to the MediaSite Enterprise Video Platform, which includes a web-based editor for doing simple edits such as cropping/cutting videos and adding/deleting slides.
- Event Capture: Some faculty instructional support teams provide capturing services for special events such as guest lectures or presentations, using portable lecture-capture equipment.
Contact your faculty support unit once you've determined how you want to use MediaSite, and they will help you from there.
