Ensemble is a media server that allows faculty and staff members to manage and publish their audio and video files into a Learning Management System (LMS) such as Blackboard, and on other websites. Ensemble also allows students to submit audio and video files to a "dropbox" for instructors to review or share with other students.
The Ensemble Anthem application is a separately-licensed add-on that allows individuals to create screen capture and webcam recordings which are automatically uploaded into the user’s Ensemble Media Library.
If you are interested in enabling Anthem in your existing Ensemble account, please Open a Ticket at our Media Server (Ensemble Video) page and select “Request Anthem Account” from the Media Server (Ensemble) Selection drop-down menu.
To meet accessibility requirements, videos need to be close captioned. There are several ways to accomplish this in Ensemble, including the Amara Caption Editor, or submitting a video or group of videos to our third party captioning service.
Once you have uploaded a video, please Open a Ticket at our Media Server (Ensemble Video) page and select “Request Captioning” from the Media Server (Ensemble) Selection drop-down menu.
Captioning takes a minimum of one week once the request has been made to our third party captioning service. Turnaround time may vary depending on the length of the video.
