Click the ‘Search‘ button and enter a phrase in the search field to locate your presentations. Mediasite does a search against presentations’ metadata, including title, presenters, tags, etc.

5. My Presentations
Select the content you want to view:

  • Expand the My Presentations drop-down list and select one of the following options:
  • My Presentations: View all presentations that you own. This includes published presentations, drafts, presentations that have not yet been recorded, and scheduled presentations. You will also see presentations that you have approve and moderate permissions on.
  • Missed Presentations: View presentations scheduled earlier but not recorded. Missed presentations are sorted by the date they were scheduled (in ascending order). You can use MDR to record missed presentations.
  • Upcoming Presentations: View upcoming scheduled presentations by date in ascending order. You can use MDR to record upcoming presentations.
  • My Drafts: View your unpublished presentations.

6. Channels
Channels are searchable, online collections of presentations. You can create as many channels as you want and add presentations to them. Your channels are not viewable to other users in Deakin Video. However, you can share your channels’ URLs with others. You will select a channel as your ‘favorite’ to display it in the left navigation panel for easy access.

7. Shared Folders
If shared folders are available on your Deakin Video, you can add your presentations to them. Shared folders are accessible by multiple users. In fact, any user with write permissions to a shared folder can view and add content to it. Your administrator creates shared folders and you cannot edit or delete them from Deakin Video. You will select a shared folder as your ‘favorite’ to display it in the left navigation panel for easy access.
