UFIT recently brought the Vodcast feature online, a feature that provides a streamlined way to share videos recorded using Mediasite. With a Vodcast, the video and accompanying slides are combined into a single video file. Over the years, UFIT has received numerous requests for a ‘one video file solution’, and as soon as the Vodcast feature became available, our staff implemented it!
As an addition to existing Mediasite streaming, Vodcasts offer instructors a supplemental teaching tool for offline viewing, even on mobile devices. Vodcasts are one of several services provided by UFIT’s Video & Collaboration Services (VCS) group. In addition to provisioning MyMediasite accounts, VCS can record live events around campus. They also provide videoconference scheduling. To submit a request for VCS support, click on the orange ‘Request Service’ button found here.
Please email the Video & Collaboration Services group if you have any questions about the Mediasite catalog or other service offerings.
