MyMediasite Overview

Streaming video storage is available to faculty and staff with a MyMediasite account. You have the ability to upload, edit, and manage your own content, with hosting on the VCS Mediasite server. Faculty and staff are provided free storage for instructional purposes.

With a MyMediasite account, faculty and staff are also able to download the Mediasite Desktop Recorder, which allows you to capture high-quality slideshows or screencasts that preserve every annotation and screen movement. Pair your content with webcam video or simply a voice-over, and the Mediasite Desktop Recorder synchronizes everything you say and show.
