How do I use Microsoft Stream?

In This Article:

Overview:

Students and employees at UI are given access to Microsoft Stream. Microsoft Stream is a video-sharing service that instructors may use to offer lectures and other video content for their students. 

Instructors use Microsoft groups to protect videos stored in Microsoft Stream. Microsoft groups are custom generated by ITS and allow access to only those individuals enrolled in a course section.

  • When assigning groups, start your search with "Term - title", where term is Fall 2020; where title is the course subject (e.g. ENGL, MATH, BIOL) exactly including spaces. Example: Fall 2020 - ENGL101.
  • There is no need to upload a video multiple times. If a video meets all FERPA requirements across multiple sections, assign multiple Microsoft Groups to the video.
  • You may give an individual permission to view the video if they meet all FERPA requirements (e.g. notetaker)
