How To...

Add a Video

OIT does not host streaming videos on our web servers. If you are wanting a streaming video on your site, your first step will be to talk to ITDL about acquiring hosting for your video.

Once you have acquired hosting for your video with ITDL on their servers, you will need to contact the OIT Web Admin about creating a "Landing" Page for your video.

What is the purpose of a "Landing" Page?
The purpose of a landing page is to give your potential viewer some information about the video you are wanting them to watch. This information should include a small "blurb" about your video. This blurb should give a description of your video and entice the person to actually want to watch your video. In addition to your blurb, the file size should be included so that users with a slow connection are aware that it might take them awhile to be able to view the video. Lastly, the type of media will be included on the page so the viewer will be aware of what media player is required to play the video and whether or not they will need to download and install a software.

Once your "Landing" page has been created to your satisfaction, a link will be placed off of your main pages to the "Landing" Page.
