About Media Collaboration

In Cornell Video on Demand, media owners may share control and responsibility of their media several different ways. They can:

  • add collaborators and give them rights to be co-editors, co-publishers, and co-viewers of media

  2. Click My Media.
  3. Click the thumbnail image or the name of the media.
  4. Click My Actions, then click Edit.
  5. Click Collaboration.

  7. Type the name or NetID of the person who you would like to add as a collaborator on the media.
