Sharing Media

To share your media with your students, contact remote-teaching@reed.edu to assist you in working with Ensemble, our media server, to upload your content. We do not recommend uploading video files to Moodle.

If you are sharing movies from dvds or another media format (cd, VHS tape), please get in contact with Jim Holmes, Director of Access Services.

Sharing media from Ensemble

Once you have uploaded your content to the Ensemble server, you need to choose how you will sharey our media. You can link to the media or embed the media elsewhere, such as Moodle or a course web page. If you will be sharing more than a single media file over the course of the term, consider creating a video playlist.

Here is an example of a link to Ensemble media: view an example video
