How do I copy media assets in MediaManager?

You will learn that media assets in ShareStream (such as video and audio files) must be copied for each course in which you want to use them.

This guide will show you how to copy media assets using the MediaManager block in your course.

First, decide whether you want to copy all of your media assets are just select ones:

I want to copy all media assets.

The best way to copy all of your media assets is to use the Pick-n-Play block instead of the MediaManager, unless you already have some videos in the destination course.

1. Enter your destination course.

This is the course where you want to copy the media assets to. For example, if you have two sections of the same course, you copy the course content in TITANium, then you copy the media assets in ShareStream. Both steps need to be taken for each course and each term.
