Members of Maastricht University (UM) teaching staff, who would like to use video in their education, now have a one stop portal for video recording, uploading and sharing: VideUM. This portal provides information on video production, didactics, copyright, and good practices.

VideUM has been entirely redesigned into a portal that serves as a video information hub for UM teaching staff, and as the gateway to UM video platform Mediasite. On this platform lecture recordings, as well as short educational videos, can be stored and shared with students. As of April this year, the UM library manages Mediasite, in close collaboration with faculty support staff.

In the good practices section of videUM, you find information on video design and the use of video in education. This section also features short recorded interviews in which members of our UM teaching staff explain how they use video in their education.

VideUM, also provides information on video design, didactics, video formats, recording and editing tools and about video and copyright.

You can also book a studio or find a cameraman or editor through VideUM.

Upload videos

Register a lecture

VideUM directs you to the right place for lecture registration, no matter what faculty you are from.

Find your faculty video support staff

Each faculty has one or more staff members who provide support on the use of Mediasite. You can contact them with questions about your MyMediasite account, or get help with registering a lecture, uploading and sharing your own videos.


Go to VideUM. You can also get a free demonstration of VideUM during a video event that takes place on 14 June, from 11.00-13.00.

It is held in the DKE building on Tapijnkazerne, and is open to all UM staff members. Follow this link for more details and to register.
