Rich media—video, audio, images, podcasts and video synchronized with slides—represents an increasingly significant portion of an educational institution’s library collections and archives.

The ShareStream Video Platform for Education provides academic libraries and consortia with the capability to consolidate multiple “silos” of rich-media content into an enterprise-wide digital asset-management system for media empowered with state-of-the-art digital rights management (DRM).

ShareStream, a turnkey solution for libraries' and consortia’s multimedia needs, is ideal for housing both course and non-course-related collections for password-protected as well as public access. Implementation of the ShareStream Media Platform allows libraries to:

  • Efficiently upload and transcode multimedia assets
  • Catalogue content with standards-based metadata, such as Dublin Core
  • Centrally store, manage and archive media and course reserves in a campus-wide media repository
  • Control access to content and manage digital-media licenses through fine-grained digital rights management designed specifically to address the compliance requirements of academic libraries
  • Report on media usage through sophisticated video analytics.

The ShareStream Media Repository: Bridging Libraries with Teaching and Learning Through Technology

ShareStream’s digital asset-management software provides full integration with mission-critical teaching and learning systems, including ShareStream’s LMS Extensions for video and audio content.

ShareStream bridges the technological divide that often exists between library and instructional-technology systems by making video, audio and images managed in the library available directly within LMSs and other eLearning applications, while controlling content dissemination through fine-grained digital rights management.

In this way, the ShareStream Video Platform changes the equation for academic computing by facilitating greater fluidity between the library and teaching and learning, and allowing educational institutions to achieve significantly greater value from its content by seamlessly bringing rich media stored in the library into the teaching and learning domain to enrich online course-based learning.
