MediaSpace is a hosted service that allows you to upload and share videos. It's basically like a YouTube exclusively for the OSU community. Faculty, staff and students may upload media content themselves to the MediaSpace servers and then share the media via public websites and direct links or as embeds into Blackboard or Drupal pages.

MediaSpace (sometimes typed, erroneously, as Media Space) lets everyone with an ONID account to begin using MediaSpace.

Instructors may contact Technology Across the Curriculum (TAC) for consulting on integrating your videos into your Blackboard courses and enhancing your pedagogical strategies.
