Archived Training Sessions

Generic Technology Image

The following is a list of all available archived training sessions. As technology rapidly changes, please keep in mind that some of the technology shown may have changed since the session was recorded. We do not remove older videos because, while interfaces and options change, the concepts involved often remain the same.

Some sessions are available through Collaborate and others are on Mediasite. For help with Collaborate, please refer to the Collaborate section on the faculty support page. For sessions on Mediasite, if you haven't previously logged into Mediasite you will be prompted to fill out a profile. Simply enter a name and email address to proceed.

If you are looking for recordings of university meetings and events, you will find them on the Archived Meetings page.
