Creating Videos for the Ecademy and Etube

Videos for the Ecademy and eTube must first be uploaded to Safari Montage Creation Station 

To Upload a Video to Ecademy or to your School's Tube go to: media.edina.k12.mn.us
**If there is a prompt about downloading something, click remind me later...
  • Login using your district username and password

Click on Creation Station Upload


Title your Video FIRST and then Browse for the Video File on your computer 
**Sometimes it takes a while for the navigation box to appear to look for your file

Click Agree when the Copyright box appears




Once your video has been uploaded, you can add a few items before we publish.


When you click on Information and Rights Management, you can change any of the settings but all items should be checked by default.



It is a good idea to correlate your video to a State Standard in Safari Montage, but this information will not carry over to Etube or the Ecademy.



Publish Media
  • Once you have set all of your settings...
  • Click on Publish Media 

Click Agree



Search
  • Search for your video by one of the words that was in the title of the video



Edit
  • It appears like there are two videos - one of them is yours and now one of them is available to anyone in the district. 
  • The one you own is the one with the editing buttons.
  • Click on the Edit Button - look for the pencil




Next we are going to publish to either your buildings ETube or the Ecademy
  • Click on ETube
  • Publish to Portal



Publish to Etube
  • Your video is now being converted for Etube.  Sometimes this takes a little while. 
  •  Keep clicking on the refresh button until you see the little home icon.  
  • Once your video is ready, you will see a drop down box to choose which TUBE you want to upload your video to.  You can choose your building or Ecademy.
  • Click on Publish and now you are in the Etube environment.
