Mediasite: Staff Guides

Mediasite is the University’s Lecture Capture and Multimedia system.

It allows you to record, edit and share digital content. Mediasite can automatically record taught sessions if they have been set up on the University timetable, but you can also record screencasts or upload video and audio files to Mediasite.

You can access Mediasite via the homepage in Minerva or by logging in via the Mediasite Leeds Login Page. User guidance is available on the IT website, we've provided links to some popular guides below.

Request a change to the owner of a lecture capture/Mediasite recording

Mediasite recordings, including lecture capture content can only be owned by one person within the University. Where ownership needs to be transferred e.g. wrong owner, staff leaving, changing roles etc., please refer to the Request a change to the owner of a Mediasite/lecture capture recording article on the IT website (this link will take you there).

Depending on the school you belong to, the process for request change may differ, this article provides you with guidance on how to request a change.

Adding a Microsoft Stream (on SharePoint) recording to a Minerva module

If you record taught sessions using Microsoft Teams these are saved by default to Microsoft Stream (on SharePoint). Uploading these recordings into Mediasite allows your students to view this content more easily within Minerva, alongside the lecture capture recordings that may exist for the module.

Additionally, it is not currently possible to embed Microsoft Stream (on SharePoint) videos without having to manually manage access for each person who needs to view them. For this reason, Mediasite is also the most suitable platform for video recordings you want to embed in Minerva.
