Getting Started

The UBC Video Share beta is a one-year period of discovery designed to allow for user feedback and for UBC IT to adjust the new platform as required for optimal performance. Over this initial year, UBC Video Share will be open and available to all Connect users and an already defined sub-set of pilot users. The focus of the beta period is to stabilize the service and then expand UBC Video Share's capabilities to meet the myriad of video-related needs of the UBC community.
