FAQs

What is MediaCore/UMW Media Hub?

It is best explained by taking the MediaCore tour. As it relates to UMW, the UMW Media Hub is part of a new initiative to provide UMW with a “media space of one’s own” – a place to put video, audio, and other media in an accessible area for use in Canvas (the university’s LMS), and WordPress (UMW Blogs and “Domain of One’s Own” installations).

Where is the UMW MediaCore site?

The UMW MediaCore site is at http://mediahub.umw.edu.

Is there a person I can talk to about using MediaCore at UMW?

Yes. You can contact Andy Rush (x1526) in the Division of Teaching and Learning Technologies or send an email to umwnewmedia [at] gmail [dot] com .

Why did you write out the contact email umwnewmedia [at] gmail [dot] com?

Because spammers like to send their “bots” out to find email addresses in webpages and add them to their lists. Writing it out like this umwnewmedia [at] gmail [dot] com will enable humans to figure out the email address, but keep spambots from finding them.
