Add Media

Before Adding New Media

It is best practice to upload content created for specific course or project to a dedicated Mediaflo library. If your content is for a specific project or course and you do not have a Mediaflo library for that purpose, you can request an additional Mediaflo library.

Users with Multiple Libraries

If you have access to multiple organizations or media libraries, please confirm that you are in the correct organization and library before uploading content.

To change libraries in Mediaflo: 

  1. Select the proper organization from the drop-down menu at the top-center of the page.
  2. Select the proper library from the drop-down menu at the top-right of the page.
