Acting as a kind of YouTube managed by Coventry IT Services, Medial allows educators and students to capture, upload and manage content to a university server.

Medial integrates with most LMS platforms and can be used to record lectures, host live streams, or as a way for students to submit video-based assessments and activities.

You can find examples of Medial in action, as well as use it yourself, by visiting the university media server at or you can find out more about the tool at
