Working closely with Information Technology, OIT and IT have established a faculty media server (FMS) where faculty can store audio and video files. The FMS is housed on the BCC campus secure server farm. The files are streamed using the Flash Video (.flv) format for Video and mp3 format for Audio.
Faculty interested in housing media (video or audio) files on the Faculty Media Server should contact Albert Robinson at email@example.com or 718.289.5100 Ext. 3063. For security reasons, at this time faculty cannot upload directly to the media server. Media files that need to be uploaded right away should be brought to the OIT office (on a CD or DVD) locatedin Colston Hall, Room 226. Media files can also be sent via interoffice mail to Albert Robinson, OIT, CO 226. When sending media files via interoffice mail, be sure to keep a backup copy of the files.
You will be notified by email when the files are ready for viewing. You will also be provided with a web link to your media files. The link can then be posted on a web page, in a Blackboard course, or distributed to students in another way.
OIT offers workshops on the creation of media files. See the Workshop Calendar. For more advanced faculty development in the application of podcasting to instruction, the Level II Podcasting Option is a possibility.
For additional information about the Faculty Media Server (FMS), contact Albert Robinson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 718.289.5100 Ext. 3063.
