Mediaspace is a community-wide creative space for sharing video, audio and images that can be accessed from myID.sva.edu. This site is exclusive to the SVA community and offers opportunities for sharing and collaborating between students, faculty and staff. Think of it as a Campus-wide YouTube that allows you full control over who has access to your videos.
For Faculty, Mediaspace is a great tool in your teaching toolkit. It will provide you not only a new place to host videos for your course, but it also presents a forum to collaborate
- Publish demos and lectures under the Academics tab.
- Share videos from YouTube that inspire you and inform your teaching.
- Find valuable resources and useful tutorials under Faculty Resources.
- See what students are posting under Student Work
Find it in your myID dashboard apps.
To access Mediaspace, first log in to myid.sva.edu. There you will find Kaltura Mediaspace added to your app dashboard. Click on the icon and start sharing!
For those of you already using Canvas, you will recognize many features within Mediaspace including the presence of “My Media.” This provides you with instant access to all the content you’ve already loaded into your Canvas account. Anything you’ve added to My Media will now be available to you both within Canvas and Mediaspace, ready to share with your class, a fellow instructor/student, the department as a whole, or the wider campus community.
In addition to your own “My Media,” you’ll find useful categories pre-populated with content to explore. This is just the beginning. Add your own content, and keep checking back to see what’s new and exciting!
