The Teams feature allows a subset of users to fully collaborate on media. Each team member can interact with a piece of media as if it is their own content. This means that each team member can: share any video, image, audio or other file that is part of said team; edit a team video or image using the MyVideoSpot editor tools; add new thumbnail images or change any metadata attributes of the media item. While users of any access level can be added to a team, you must be a part of the Teacher user class or above to create a team.
Creating a Team
To create a new team, click the Administrator Tools icon (toolbox) on the top menu. Select Teams under the Media Administration section and click the Create Team button. Give your team a name and an optional description and then click the Create and Add Users button. This will bring you to a page of users within your district that you can add to your team. Please read the caution message carefully: “Any member of a Team, regardless of access level, can view, edit, and delete any media added to the Team.” Think carefully about who you add to your teams. Click the plus sign next to a name to add a single user or check the checkboxes next to several users and click the Add Selected Users to Team button. You will get a confirmation message at the top of the page to indicate the new members were successfully added.
If you’d like to make changes to your team later, click the Teams icon (people carrying together) on the top menu. Click the Update icon (pencil) at the end of the row your team is listed in. Here is where you can change the name and description of the group.
