Installing the Mediasite Desktop Recorder

Mediasite is a media service tool used to record and store video recordings. It is recommended that you complete the following steps several days prior to recording.

To download the Mediasite Desktop Recorder, you will need to access the Mediasite Desktop Recorder webpage using the following instructions:

1. In your Blackboard Course, click the MyMediasite course link on the course menu.

2. Then, click the MyMediasite link on the content page. 

Note: This link will redirect you to the MyMediasite webpage, so you will need to allow pop-ups for it to open successfully.



3. Once the MyMediasite webpage loads, it should look similar to the image below.

Note: Your MyMediasite account is synced by user, not by course. Therefore, any videos you create can be placed in any course. 



4. Click Download the Desktop Recorder at the bottom left corner of the page.

5. On the new page, click Download Desktop Recorder for [Mac/Windows] at the bottom left corner of the window and follow the prompts that appear. 




6. Before you complete “Step 3: Register your Mediasite Desktop Recorder with Mediasite Server,” complete the following Mediasite Desktop Recorder Account Validation Request form to request that your account be verified. This could take up to 24 hours to verify, so it is best to do these steps several days prior to recording.

7. After you receive an email stating your account has been validated, you can then click Register Mediasite Desktop Recorder on "Step 3: Register your Mediasite Desktop Recorder with Mediasite Server."

This will open the Mediasite Desktop Recorder and you should receive an "Authenticated Successfully" notice.
