Project Details

This project is designed to help students within Professor Hansen's course to upload and share videos through MediaSpace and embed them in Brightspace Assignment Submission Folder.

What's the Media Upload tool?

The Media Upload tool in MediaSpace allows you to upload video and audio files, stored on your computer, tablet, or smartphone, to your MediaSpace account. Once the upload is complete, a copy of that file will reside in your MediaSpace online storage and will be accessible from your My Media page.

Uploading Video Files to MediaSpace From Phone or Laptop

There are two ways to upload a file from your mobile device to your MediaSpace account. First, you could transfer the file to your laptop or desktop computer and then upload it to MediaSpace. Second, you could upload the file directly to MediaSpace using the Web browser on your mobile device.

  1. With your phone or laptop, go to MediaSpace at https://mediaspace.minnstate.edu
  2. Sign in with your StarID username and password. This will open your My Media page.
  3. Select Media Upload from the Add New new menu (Fig 1).
  4. Select Choose a file to upload. You will then be prompted to browse your device for a video or audio file.
  5. Once you have selected your file, a copy of it will begin to upload.
