Mediasite Migration to Kaltura
If you are a Mediasite user and have not already requested your content be moved to Kaltura, now is a good time because ITS is eliminating Mediasite. To convert from Mediasite to Kaltura, send a request to Academic IT.
What's New in Webex
HuskyCT instructors can now integrate Webex directly into their course page, allowing instructors to create/begin scheduled meetings, list class recordings, and facilitate office hours directly through HuskyCT. Also, instructors can now pre-assign breakout session groups. Users in breakout sessions will also be able to move between breakout sessions without the instructor manually moving them, leading to increased flexibility with larger discussion sections. The hand-raising feature in Webex has moved to the emoji section for mobile users. In addition to hand-raising, users will now be able to use thumbs up/down and clapping emojis along with other seasonal emojis. Finally, Webex now utilizes Slido for their polling feature.
Instructors and students will no longer need to use iClicker Sync because iClicker Cloud will integrate into your HuskyCT course.
