CTET is thrilled to launch My Media, a new feature in Moodle that will make it easier to create, edit and share videos and other media in Moodle courses.

Introducing My Media:

My Media allows you to create, edit, and share videos and other media directly in your Moodle platform. From your My Media library, you can create screencasts, narrated presentations, audio recordings and videos of yourself from your webcam. You can even add questions to your video to make a video quiz. Watch a short video for a sneak peak of what My Media can do:

Over the last several months, we have been developing resources and training to support you in using My Media.

Updated articles in the Knowledgebase:

We have created a new section in the Knowledgebase about My Media, where you will find how-to guides, step-by-step instructions and demo videos about how to use the different features in My Media.

Workshop opportunity:

All RRU faculty and staff are invited to participate in a 90-minute workshop about My Media, scheduled for November 14 from 1:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. This is an opportunity to learn how to use My Media, including hands-on practice creating, editing and sharing videos and other media using my My Media. Please note  this workshop assumes a basic familiarity with Moodle.

By the end of the workshop, you will be able to:

  • Create new media recordings (e.g. webcam, voice, screencast, narrated presentation, video quizzes, etc.);
  • Edit media recordings;
  • Identify reasons to use video and other media in a Moodle course;
  • Navigate around your My Media library; and
  • Upload video and other media to a Moodle page.

Online self-paced learning opportunity:

We are also offering an online self-paced course about My Media, which you can complete at your own pace from the comfort of your office or home.

Registration information:

To register for this workshop or the online self-paced course, send an email to CTET Faculty Development and let us know which version (on-campus workshop or online self-paced) you would like to take.
