** Note: Panopto will soon be replacing Ensemble Video and TechSmith Relay. Please note that Relay and Ensemble will be maintained until the migration of current recordings into the new Panopto system is completed but we ask that you spend some time reviewing your videos in Ensemble and start to remove any videos that aren’t necessary (such as past student video projects).
The University Libraries in collaboration with IDeL, is currently providing Ensemble video to GVSU faculty and staff. Ensemble Video is a video hosting solution for you and your student’s self-created video files. Ensemble is also available as a blackboard building block so that your videos can be directly embedded into your Blackboard courses once they have been uploaded to Ensemble. Uploading to Ensemble can be done by manually uploading files or using TechSmith Relay to record a video and automatically upload it to Ensemble.
Getting started with Ensemble is easy! The links below will help you with getting an account and getting videos loaded into Blackboard.
