The MyMedia Service was launched in 2011 as a replacement for the old Lectopia/iLecture service that had been running since 2005. The MyMedia Service is the new generation of lecture capture and delivery, providing new and exciting features for both staff and students from Semester 2 2011.
The MyMedia Service provides automated capture of lectures, in selected lecture theatres, and delivers these captured recordings via the Internet (normally through MyLO) to students. Recordings typically capture anything shown through the data projector (content) and audio from the venue.
Recordings are made available in a range of formats including the new MyMedia Player streaming format - a rich media environment for students, RSS feeds and download formats.
Currently 30 venues are part of the MyMedia Service automated capture cohort. Staff who are not teaching in a MyMedia Service venue can still make use of the service by either using the Personal Capture Software and publishing the recording, or recording the lecture manually and using the External Media Ingest functionality.
In order to use the MyMedia Service, we do require that you submit a booking request per unit (or special event). This is done through the booking system available on this website.
The MyMedia Service was successfully updated this morning (Friday 13th July). Students and staff will see some changes to the interface, but all previous functionality remains available.
The MyMedia Service now has a regular service outage window every Friday from 8am - 8.30am.This means that access to recordings and administration of recordings will be unavailable during this time.
In 2012 the MyMedia Service offers a new user interface for both staff and students providing easier access to lecture recordings and facilitating more features including bookmarks and discussions. The new interface is commonly referred to as the Unit Portal.
