Faculty can record and upload instructional videos, audio, and images they create to the Ensemble streaming server at https://ensemble.viterbo.edu instead of uploading files directly into Moodle. This allows large media files to be streamed to students, enabling them to access content more quickly and without needing a robust internet connection. Recorded Powerpoints, video files of many types, audio files, and images galleries can be uploaded and managed by faculty.
Reminder: Ensemble is available to faculty and staff only. Students can only use Ensemble by uploading media to a dropbox set up by an instructor.
Please do not upload content that you have not created. To stream institutionally-owned videos, please visit the Online Conversion to Digital Format Request form. If you have questions, email the reference desk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you find that your video quality is too grainy, select the “MP4/MP3 - Upload (no conversion)” workflow (if it is already an MP4 file) or the "Screencast 1280x720" option (if it is a screen recording) when uploading:
To change a video you’ve already uploaded, go to “Manage” the video:
...then Delete it under “Media” (on upload page):
...then upload all over again (on that same Manage tab; no need to exit and start anew).
This process allows the link/embed code to stay the same (if you’ve put it in Moodle or shared the link).
If you see this icon:
..and your video won't play, you need to RE-upload your video. To fix the issue, delete video and upload with the following selection:
Be sure to select "Compress and Stream..." to convert your file to an .mp4.
