Add a Video to your Sakai Site

There are two methods that Mediasite videos can be added to a Site in Sakia. The first method is to add the video to the Mediasite collection. Students would then see the video as part of the course channel through the Mediasite Videos link. The second option is by adding a link to the video directly on the Lesson page. The advantage of this method is that more context can be added around the video.
