OIT’s Digital Media Services (DMS) provides support for instruction through the digitization and conversion of course materials into usable media formats. Videos are hosted for a limited time on secure, OIT-supported hosting solutions.
Our standard turnaround time for video hosting is three to five working days depending on the size and scope of your project. However, we will accommodate quick turnaround requests when possible. Let us know your deadline. If there’s a way, we’ll meet it. Please note: text, image, artwork, and slide scanning can take several days to weeks to complete.
Faculty and instructors can request instructional support materials digitized at no additional cost. These materials must be used in courses in which UT students are enrolled and are receiving credit toward a degree. Faculty must provide the course name and number.
Digitizing requests for research, promotion, or other non-curricular uses by faculty, staff, or departments may require a fee-for-service based on the parameters of the request.
When your materials are ready, you will receive a URL to your streaming audio and video. This link can be added to your Online@UT(Canvas) course site to limit access to just the student enrolled in your course or embedded into a web page to share your content publicly depending on the need.
Consultations about digitizing, managing and hosting media need to first be requested by contacting us through the OIT HelpDesk.
