Upload course videos

The application "Upload course videos" enables you to upload course videos to the semester pages, in the folder "Lecture videos" ("forelesningsvideoer"). You may also link the content to a specific lecture activity in the schedule. If the course uses Canvas, the video will also be available from the menu in the Canvas course room.

If you would like to upload course videos manually, please see our guide for manual uploading.

1. Start the web application

Start the web application by going to the Upload course videos website.

All UiO users have access by logging in with their UiO username and password. 

2. Select course

After logging in, select the course you wish to upload course videos to.

To upload course videos to a course you need to have write access to the folder "Lecture videos" ("forelesningsvideoer") on the semester page. If you do not have access to the folder, contact the web editor for studies at your unit.  

By connecting the course video to a specific lecture activity in the schedule, it will be available for the students in the course schedule and in Mine studier. If no lecture is chosen, your course video will be uploaded to the folder "Lecture videos", but will not be linked from the web pages.

When you have chosen a course and lecture (optional) click the "Next"-button.

3. Settings

You have now chosen a course and lecture (optional). Next you need to choose a title for your recording(s) and a publishing state. 

Title recording

The title is the title the video file will get once uploaded. When linked to a lecture, this title will be displayed in the schedule. A default title is set, but you can change it here.

The title can be changed from the default title before uploading the video.

If you choose to upload more than one file, all files will get the same title in the schedule. You may change the title later by accessing the file on the semester page.

Upload published/unpublished

You can choose whether to upload the recording in a published or unpublished state on the semester page. If the recording is published, it will be available in the schedule and on the web pages from the moment it is uploaded. If the recording is unpublished, it will not be available in the schedule or the web pages until it is published.
