DU MediaSpace offers the ability to create public, private, and restricted channels for your media (video, audio or images).

What’s a channel?

A channel is a password-protected area at DU MediaSpace that requires all users to login before they can access a set of videos. Beyond the basic login, some channels can have extra security features that only allow specific DU members access to a set of media items. You may want to create a channel if you need to:

  • Organize media for a group of University community members.
  • Share media privately with selected University community members.

What’s a gallery?

A DU MediaSpace Gallery is a set of public group media items that does not require any type of login. Public galleries does require that you contact our DU Kaltura team (kaltura@du.edu) to create a gallery. You may want to create a gallery if you need to:

  • Market your academic program or public University events.
  • Market your program research.
