Mediasite Instructions for Faculty Senators

All Faculty Senate meetings are aired live via Mediasite. Senators planning to participate in meetings via Mediasite should email the Senate office prior to each meeting. Following are Mediasite instructions:

  • View Faculty Senate meetings via Mediasite by clicking on the link entitled: “View the Senate meeting via Mediasite” on the Senate Homepage (http://senate.psu.edu). This link will connect you to the current Senate meeting directly.
  • IMPORTANT After you are connected to the live feed of the Senate meeting, please send a message using the “ask a question” box informing the Senate office staff that you have successfully joined the meeting. Your attendance for the meeting will then be recorded.
  • Senators may ask questions by clicking on the balloon icon  located on the top left of the screen above the live video box.
    • A separate box will open to enter your name, email address and subject [QUESTION]. To ask a question, simply type a question in the box.
    • Click the “send” button to submit. The box will close and the participant will be returned to the live feed.
    • The live feed will begin at 1:30 p.m on each designated meeting day.

Please Note: If you should lose connection or the live feed freezes at any time during a Senate meeting, close your browser completely and start over. Many times this will allow you to continue viewing the live feed should there be a lag in the server.
