My videos are taking forever to upload!
There are a lot of reasons why an upload would take a long time to go from your computer to Median's servers. Here are a few of the most common reasons:
How can I make a YouTube-like channel?
There are a lot of features in Median that can accomplish this. First, every user can create "Playlists" by clicking "Manage Your Content" at the Median home page and then clicking on the "Playlists" link above your entries. These are personal playlists, just for you. If you want to create a list of entries that's controlled by not just yourself, start a Group by clicking "Groups" at the Median home page and then finally click the "Start a New Group" button. You can add new entries or existing entries to your playlists or groups.
How do I make my entry visible only to X but not to Y?
Every entry on Median has complex access controls that can help set who can see your entry. When uploading a new entry or editing an existing one, these options are found in the Privacy & Ownership section. That's where you can set who owns the entry, who can see the entry, and whether to password-protect or hide the entry entirely. For example, if you want to restrict an entry just to your class, you can select your class from the dropdown in the Organization section, and then later in the form check off Restrict to Class.
How long can my entries "live" on Median?
Your content can exist on Median at least as long as you have a valid Emerson College account. If any content on Median by people no longer at Emerson is deleted, such action will be preceded by standard account deletion notifications sent by Information Technology.
