MediaSpace is a free media tool available to USNH students, faculty and staff that allows uploading, management, storage, and sharing of media. It supports nearly all audio, video and image assets. The software application, MediaSpace, is licensed from Kaltura.

  • Assets uploaded to Mediaspace can be used in websites and social media as single items or playlists and can be shared publicly or with restricted access. 

  • Videos uploaded in MediaSpace can also be accessed through the myCourses LMS for use as course material or assignments. 

  • Using MediaSpace instead of YouTube makes it possible to control the playback experience and avoid inappropriate content and ads.  

  • MediaSpace provides automatic captioning, which is required for accessibility compliance.

Support & Training

Although USNH ET&S is responsible for the maintenance and operation of MediaSpace it is offered as a self-service tool. MediaSpace documentation is available via the USNH IT Knowledge Base. For issues or problems with MediaSpace, please contact your institution's IT Service Desk. Training may be offered periodically through the Teaching & Learning Technologies training calendar.

Responsibility for content

Media posted may be created by members of the University community acting as individuals or as official representatives of the university system of New Hampshire. MediaSpace use must comply with USNH policies and US laws. Before posting files, read these MediaSpace guidelines about copyright, appropriate content, permission when recording others and restricted data.


At this time, media files, channels, and other content in MediaSpace are not removed after a certain period of time.  In the future, this may change.

Individuals are responsible for backing up files that they post or remove.


ET&S Software Development reserves the right to remove at any time any content that it considers in violation of this standard or any other USNH policies.

If inappropriate or inaccurate content is discovered, ET&S will contact the site owner to discuss the issue. If the site or content owner cannot be contacted or is no longer at USNH, that content will be administered by ET&S and can be removed if deemed inaccurate or inappropriate. When content is obviously unacceptable, ET&S will immediately remove the content prior to contacting the site owner. Unacceptable entries also may cause site access to be suspended.

Reports regarding inappropriate content may be sent to ET&S Software Development.
