Mediasite Desktop Recorder for UM Staff
Mediasite desktop recorder allows all UM staff members to download a desktop recorder. This tool allows you to easily record and manage videos, such as knowledge clips, instruction videos or even screencasts or and lectures using your webcam from your desktop or laptop (Note: MacOS Catalina or Mojave do not support MyMediasite software).
Online Teaching and Learning
Online teaching and learning is quite different from on face-to-face education. You need to rethink your lectures and tutorials. Try to shorten your lectures and tutorials to an hour or less, and replace live interaction with short videos and online written discussion, with Blackboard discussion boards. In addition, good preparation and clear netiquettes to ensure effective interaction. Read how to in the files below.
This advice by Dr. Tony Bates may be helpful..
Register a lecture
Livestream an event
When part of your audience cannot attend, you can livestream your lecture or event. This way all attendees can attend, either in-person or remote. If you want to organize a livestream from a lecture hall, please inform the Video support staff of the faculty where the lecture hall is located. He or she will provide you with a link to communicate to potential viewers.
