IT Services - Service catalogue

delivered by

Media Publishing (Podcasting)

The media publishing service manages the main university media channels - Oxford on iTunesU and and offers a hosting, cataloguing and media publishing service for the whole University. This service allows departments to make their content freely available to students, staff and the wider public. The service currently hosts over 5,000 hours of content and publishes over 1,000 episodes every year. The underlying content management system - Mediapub - provides the ability for departmental staff to maintain their content and receive usage metrics.
