Instructional Video

Looking to host, record, or live-stream lectures and presentations? Staff and faculty can create learning materials from a Mediasite-enabled classroom, from your laptop, or upload pre-recorded content. Videos can be shared to through Canvas, email, or the web.


Captioning Requests

If your video will be used in a class with a student who needs audio captions, captioning is legally required. The CSU system contracts with AutomaticSync, a captioning provider, and their service is integrated with Mediasite. This setup allows you to simply, and easily request that your videos be captioned. Depending on whether your content is delivered live or recorded for playback, you may also need to explore captioning options available via Zoom. A comparison guide is offered below to help identify the tool(s) best suited to your usecase.

Mediasite Access

Faculty and staff can create an account and upload video by signing into Mediasite.

A SacLink account is required to view any content posted in Mediasite, so content posted to a course is secure.

If there is a need to have a different audience view the content, like having a video open to the public, contact our Learning Space Services team.

Mediasite Consultation

Mediasite lecture capture technology allows an instructor to easily video record their lectures at selected locations on campus (AIRC 1010, AIRC 1011, Del Norte Hall 1004, Douglass Hall 208, and Library 53) and off campus (Sac State Downtown 111). These classrooms use the Mediasite system which records the classroom video, audio, and the podium content that displays on the classroom projector. Recordings can then be shared with students in various ways, for example, via a link shared within a Canvas course.
