My Media

My Media is a feature in Royal Roads’ Moodle that allows users to create, edit, and share video and audio files directly in their Moodle platform. From the My Media page, users can create:

  • screencasts
  • narrated presentations
  • audio recordings
  • webcam videos
  • video quizzes

My Media also allows users to edit and enhance recordings with titles and credits. With My Media, media is stored in users' personal libraries, which means that users only have to upload it once, even if they want to share it on multiple course sites. Instructors can upload and share video, audio, and other media directly to Moodle without the need for an external video-hosting service (e.g. YouTube). This will avoid students having to navigate away from the course page and will also avoid YouTube advertisements appearing on your videos. 

Some uses of My Media include:

  • welcome videos
  • course tours
  • course introductions
  • demo videos
  • student presentations
  • audio versions of unit overviews
  • etc.
