Step-by-step plan: Mediasite

Updated on

This article provides an organized roadmap for using Mediasite during a live session.

What do I take with me?

  • Make sure you can log in with your UCLN account. Bring your smartphone for authentication.
  • Request a recording or live stream well in advance from the video coordinators
  • Think about whether you want to set up a moderator. For more information see moderator.
  • Presentation (it is helpful to put the PowerPoint on a USB flash drive).
  • Pick up a microphone and transmitter at the front desk.

If you don't want to use a Mediasite recorder, you can pick up a webcam. See the image below to see where you can pick up a webcam. Use one of the other applications (Zoom, Teams, Kaltura Live Room) to record or live stream the session.

Step-by-step plan

  • Open your presentation on the desktop in the room. Open Firefox or Google Chrome on the room computer.
  • Test the microphone. 
  • The recording will begin automatically as scheduled by the video coordinators.


  • The video coordinator will send a link of both the live stream and the recording that you can share with students.


During a session, the presenter can answer questions posed in the Q&A. However, it is helpful to appoint a moderator. The moderator supports the presenter by observing and regulating the questions. This can be done directly during a live session, or it can consist of an individual answering after the session. The questions remain available until the session is deleted.
