MediaSpace

MediaSpace is a free media tool available to UNH students, faculty, and staff that allows the uploading, management and sharing of media.  MediaSpace supports nearly all audio, video and image assets.

Purpose and Audience

MediaSpace allows easy storage of media to use in websites or on social media, as single items or playlists, for public or restricted audiences. Videos uploaded in MediaSpace can also be accessed through the myCourses LMS for use as course material or assignments. Using MediaSpace instead of YouTube makes it possible to control the playback experience and avoid inappropriate content and ads. MediaSpace also provides automatic captioning, which is required for accessibility compliance.

MediaSpace Software

UNH Academic Technology (AT) is responsible for the maintenance and operation of MediaSpace. The software application, MediaSpace, is licensed from Kaltura.

Support

MediaSpace is offered as a self-service tool. MediaSpace documentation is available via the UNH IT Knowledge Base.  For issues or problems with MediaSpace, please contact the IT Service Desk at 603-82-4242.

Training

MediaSpace is a self-service tool. Training may be offered periodically through the Academic Technology training calendar.

Responsibility for Content

Media posted may be created by members of the University community acting as individuals or as official representatives of the University of New Hampshire. MediaSpace use must comply with UNH policies and US laws. Before posting files, read these MediaSpace guidelines about copyright, appropriate content, permission when recording others and restricted data.

Archiving

At this time, media files, channels, and other content in MediaSpace are not removed after a certain period of time.  In the future, this may change.

Individuals are responsible for backing up files that they post or remove.

Violations

In providing this service, the University does not preview, review or routinely monitor the contents of the media files of its faculty, students or staff. Concerns about materials in these files should be addressed to the file owner. If that is insufficient to resolve the concerns, the reader should contact the UNH IT Service Desk. UNH reserves the right to remove any content that it considers to violate this standard or any other UNH or USNH policies.
