August 2018 Mediasite Administrator Update

Mediasite upgrades, a pre-semester MUG meeting, a new testing environment and an important note about MSX 2018 discount are highlights for this Mediasite Admin update.

MUG Meeting August 8, 2018

Please RSVP for the rescheduled MUG meeting if you want lunch. We can’t assume everyone who was going to join us for the canceled August 1st meeting is able to attend on the 8th, so please do it again if you haven’t already. Details follow.

The next NC State Mediasite Users Group (MUG) meeting is 10:30 am Wednesday, August 8, 2018, in Parks Shops 130 on the main campus. Lunch will be provided! We need to know how many people will have lunch, so please RSVP via this link.

We encourage all college-level Mediasite Admins and associated IT personnel to attend. It’s a good opportunity to do a check-in prior to the start of our busy Fall 2018 semester.
