MediaSpace: Creating and Managing Channels

Task: This article describes how to create and manage channels in MediaSpace.

MediaSpace allows users to upload, manage, and share media. Channels are a means of sharing sets of media assets with other users.


A channel is a user-generated collection of content. You can access your channels from the My Channels selection in the User menu within MediaSpace. To work with channels, you need to do three things:

  1. Create and manage the channel (find below)
  2. Add content to the channel
  3. Control which other users have membership to your channel and what rights those other users have

Creating a Channel

  1. login with your username and password. 
  2. Select My Channels from the User drop down.

Select My Channels from Dropdown

  1. On the My Channels page, click Create Channel. The Create a New Channel page is displayed.
  1. Enter values for the Name of the Channel and optionally for a Description and Tags to help locate the channel when searching.
  2. Select the Privacy settings for the channel. The privacy settings are important as they determine who can and cannot access your channel and the media assets you add to it.

    • Private -- Membership is by invitation only and only members can view content and add content.
