Student Submission of Videos to Illinois Media Space

Create and upload your video file

  1. Log in to Illinois Media Space (
  2. Choose one of the following options:
  • Click Add New and select Express Capture.  This will allow you to create a video with an attached camera and microphone.  The Express Capture option is fully browser-based and does not require any additional software to be loaded onto your computer.  Select the appropriate camera and microphone in the settings menu and record your video.  When finished, stop the recording and click Use This.  Complete the subsequent form with a suitable Name and Description, then Save.

NOTE:  It is important to put something in the Description field for any of the options above.  An empty Description field will cause the publishing procedure to fail.
