Record & Share Lectures

Mediasite is a lecture capture tool that allows for streaming and archiving of audio, video, and presentation content.


Get Started

If you are an instructor or staff member interested in using Mediasite, please contact your school's IT department to get started.

Schools currently supporting Mediasite:

Feinberg School of Medicine

McCormick School of Engineering

At the start of each fiscal year, schools, departments, and business units can opt-in to use the Mediasite system. In some cases, based on individual needs, requests are also considered mid-year. A contract that outlines individual and shared responsibilities of NUIT and the partner school or individual must be reviewed and signed prior to gaining access to Mediasite. Mediasite recorders are also available built-in to a number of rooms around campus. See the NUIT page for more information on registering Mediasite for your school or department.

Key Features and Benefits

Setting up and utilizing Mediasite's performance functionality was easy and simple to use for all of my videos. Once I had completed recording, I could download my universally compatible video file and re-upload to our Vimeo and YouTube accounts.

Mediasite is a lecture capture and management service. It provides the ability to transmit live and on-demand video streams over the Internet, or record and store them for on-demand viewing by students from a web browser. It also offers assistive technology to enhance learning for viewers of all abilities including screen readers and keyboard shortcuts, automated and searchable closed captioning, and a Voice Search Service which pairs phonetic search with custom word lists for search result accuracy.

Here’s some of the ways Mediasite is used around campus:

  • Maintaining a collection of recorded course lectures.
  • Capturing Grand Rounds (Feinberg) and other instructional training.
  • Creating and importing videos and PowerPoint presentations to enhance student learning.
  • Capturing weekly class sessions and create collections/catalogs to supplement in-room lectures.
  • Supplementing existing curriculum by importing material produced outside the classroom.
