Key points:

Mediasite (from Sonic Foundry) is the University’s lecture capture, personal capture and media management system.

The ‘front end’ works a little like YouTube, providing access to video resources both through the VLE and externally through a Web browser. You can visit mediasite by logging in at https://mymedia.leeds.ac.uk

The ‘back end’ provides access to captured timetabled lectures and seminars, allows staff and students to create presentations and screencasts on their computers and provides a rich set of tools to edit and distribute content.

In addition, content created on a range of mobile and portable devices can also be uploaded and distributed via the VLE and other channels with this system. You do not need to download any apps, you can simply upload videos directly into the mediasite using the browser on your device.

The University of Leeds has embedded Lecture Capture as part of the Digital Strategy for Student Education. For further information on the rationale for introducing Lecture Capture please visit the Changing Landscapes Website.

The University of Leeds is now sector leading in this area. To find out more visit: The Secret to Campus-Wide Lecture Capture: How the University of Leeds Did It.
