New! Streaming Media Campus Solution

We have very exciting news!

If you have been looking for a way to share videos or have students upload recordings to share with your class, search no more. We now have a campus-wide media streaming solution! Introducing…

So what exactly is Warpwire? Think of a YouTube-like service in your Sakai site.
