New Features Available in SharkMedia

Issue Date: 01-29-2016

The Office of Innovation and Information Technology is happy to announce the availability of the following new features that can be used within the SharkMedia website and within Blackboard: Downloads and longer recordings with CaptureSpace.

CaptureSpace Recording Length Increased to 4 Hours
CaptureSpace can now be used to record sessions up to a maximum of 4 hours in length. Previously, the limit was capped at 2 hours. There are no changes necessary to start longer recordings.

Record sessions as you normally would, except now you can record 4 hours straight without creating a new recording at the 2-hour mark.

Note: This feature is available in both CaptureSpace launched through Blackboard and through the SharkMedia website.

If Media Download is enabled for a specific entry, you can use the Download button and then choose from the available flavors list to download the specific file.

Note: Audio only mp3s now available as an additional flavor to provide for download.
