The Media Server and Web Studio

The Media Server

The UCD College of Business uses the Ubicast Media Server to host video content securely.
The Media Server allows us too:

  • Locally host video content
  • Publish content to Brightspace securely, only those enrolled in your module have access
  • Stream video content on demand, compatible with multiple browsers and mobile devices
  • Analyse viewing statistics

Screencast recordings can be made interactive through the use of navigation chapters and slide markers (allowing students to go directly to areas of interest) and also through the use of collaborative annotations (allowing students to ask questions and post comments).

The lecturer can also add activities such as polls and MCQ's to dynamically engage the student audience.

Your Account

Business eLearning can set up your own personal account on the Media Server.

If you have existing video content such as PowerPoint recordings or Quicktime screencasts, use your account to upload, host and deploy your video content securely in Brightspace.
