My Mediasite and the Mediasite Desktop Recorder

My Mediasite and its companion application, the Mediasite Desktop Recorder, allow faculty to create and publish original video content directly from their computer to an OIT server. Once published, the content is available for on-demand playback and sharing via presentation URLs. The Mediasite Desktop Recorder is perfect for capturing a camera image plus a screencast or a slideshow in a side-by-side presentation.

Viewers see the presenter delivering a lecture along with presentation materials. Voiceover screencast and voiceover slideshow options are also available. With My Mediasite uploading videos directly from iOS and Android devices is also quick and easy.

Some instructional uses of My Mediasite

  • Record and share online lectures containing webcam video and presentation slides.
  • Post a course introduction showing and discussing the course site.
  • Demonstrate a software application used in a course.
  • Explore detailed viewing analytics of your My Mediasite videos.


Cost and Storage

There is no cost to faculty; My Mediasite is part of the OIT service. Videos created and uploaded via the Desktop Recorder are stored on an OIT streaming server.
