How do I add viewers to a Lecture Recording site?

When a site is created, the default is to share it with the students in the course as well as any linked Canvas course sites. However, these settings may not include all desired users, and you may wish to add individual or group (MCommunity) members to the viewer list so that they can access the videos in a site. To add viewers to a Lecture Recording site:

  1. Go to the CAEN Lecture Recording Management website (
  2. Select the Site Info option for the desired course.
  3. Scroll down to the Permissions module in the left column.
  4. Click the Viewers tab.
  5. Check the Authentication Required checkbox in order to restrict viewing access (will require UMICH login).
  6. Click on the option labeled Add People & Groups.
    If you would like to grant viewing access for a separate course section, use the Add Course Access option.
  7. Enter the uniqname(s) of anyone you would like to add as a viewer, and then click the Add button.
  8. Scroll to the bottom of the page, and then click Save.

We will never give these permissions to anyone without a site owner's consent. If a request is made for management access, the site owners/managers will be contacted to make sure this request is approved and to expedite the process.
