Edit Media Library Info

To access Media Library Info, just click the Media options link (either in the top-left navigation or from the list of Media Libraries) for any Media Library, then click "Settings."

From the Media Library Info view, you'll be able to edit the Media Library's title and description, edit contributor permission (allowing or disallowing users to upload content to the Media Library), turn Content Moderation on or off, select your preferred sort order for the library, and Delete the Media Library. Please note that these options change based on the user's Warpwire Permission to the Media Library.

Edit Title and Description

Just type in the Title and/or Description text boxes to edit them. Click "Save Changes" when you're finished.

Toggle Student Contribution

Select "yes" or "no" from the "Users with access to this library can Add Media" drop down menu. Select "yes" if you'd like any user with access to this Media Library to Add Media (making Users now Contributors). By default, only the Media Library admins can upload content.

If you select "Yes" for this choice, your students will be able to contribute content to the Media Library. This can be quite useful for distance education, or for classes with a public speaking or language component. It's convenient to have students record themselves so that the instructor and their classmates can give them feedback.

Toggle Content Moderation

The next drop down menu allows you to turn Content Moderation "on" or "off". If you turn Content Moderation on, those with non-administrative access to the Media Library will only be able to see assets they've uploaded themselves by default. Any other videos, you'll be able to make "Visible" or "Unlisted" to control if non-administrators can see them. As an administrator, you'll still be able to see all files in the Media Library, regardless of who uploaded them. This feature is a good way to share content one-on-one — foreign language students uploading graded video responses, for example.

Set Default Sort Order

Finally, the "Default sort order of media items" drop down allows you to select a default sort order for anyone viewing your Media Library. If you've taken the time to Tag your content, you can sort by Tag. If you prefer reverse chronological, you can sort by Date. What you select in this drop down will hold true for other users who view your Media Library.

From the Media Library Info page you can also: Delete a Media Library.
