Mediasite FAQs

What is Mediasite?

Mediasite is a lecture capture tool that allows instructors and staff to create digital recordings of multimedia rich lectures, presentations, and training sessions. Mediasite records and synchronizes everything they say, show, and demonstrate with little or no interaction from the presenter. Once recorded, the presentations can be added to UTHSC TV or a Blackboard course where students can watch them anytime, anywhere!
