How to Upload Media

Video Tutorial

To upload media, go to the My Workspace tab in ShareStream Pick-n-Play.

My Workspace is a personal storage location for instructor media. Media is only viewable by you when it is in My Workspace; it is not viewable by students or other users with privileges to the course. After media assets have been added in My Workspace to the Course Collection tab, the media assets will be viewable by students and other users with privileges to the course.  

To upload a media asset into ShareStream:

1.      Click on the My Workspace tab.
