Q Where is the login page for 3C Media?
Q Does this include PowerPoints?

Q Is there a max storage amount?
A No max storage amount, however, this a a max upload of 1G for each video.
Q Can we make videos on our cell phones and save them to our computer, then bring them into
3C Media to use on our Canvas accounts?
Q Can you elaborate on captioning going away?
A 3CMedia provides captioning via a DECT grant for your instructional videos that you upload to
3CMedia with some exceptions. (Noted on form when you request captioning 3CMediaSolutions
gets some of the DECT grant money and we sometimes run out of funding, but more is
available directly through DECT
You can also check with your Distance Ed department or Campus Library. Sometimes they will have funding for captioning depending on what the content .
Q I don't understand the difference between recording Zoom or recording Zoom and saving to 3C
media. What's the nuance you are pointing to?
A ConferZoom is where you create recordings of your meetings or classes; the files are stored in
your account (cloud recordings), and downloaded to Canvas when the session was intiated from
your course. 3C Media Solutions is a storage repository where you can choose to upload copies
of your ConferZoom recordings as well as other content for your own use, or to share with
Q Will my 3C account be avilable for an indefinite time, and will it appear in all my future Canvas
A 3C Media is a grant-funded project for the past 20 years; as long as funding remains, your
account will remain active. If your college has the 3C Media integration, you can pull content
from your 3C account into your Canvas course.
Q Will 3C show in the editor if 3C Media isn’t enabled in the navigation?
Q I use the link feature for YouTube videos, so what is better about this or not?
A We are not a competitor of YouTube, it is completely up to you if you would like to use this
feature, it's just something we offer for convenience. We get feedback that instructors like to
put YouTube items into 3C Media to reduce distractions of YouTube's "suggested videos”.
Q Can you embed a video in a module?
Q Is that option also available for students to use in the case that they are asked to upload a
Q In recording videos of me speaking directly into Canvas, it has been quite hit or miss --
sometimes it doesn't save. Canvas help has said that my internet connection may be the
issue. Would recording my "weekly message" in ConferZoom and save to 3C Media and then
embed in Canvas resolve this problem?
A If you do your weekly message on campus with the better bandwidth, record it on your Zoom
desktop and save the recording into 3CMedia and then embed it into Canvas, it should work. If
you are still having issues please submit a support ticket to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
with details and screen shots.
Q So if we bring the video into 3CM then it will be there irregardless of whether the video is
removed from YT which is happening a lot lately?
A No, if it is removed from YouTube it will be removed from your 3C Media account as
Q I have a URL for a 3C video previously created for me, how can I add to my 3C media library?
A If you have a URL you can add that video to a Playlist. If you did not create the video, but
someone gave you the URL, that video would reside in the other person’s media library not
yours. You can generally add media that you created to your 3C Media library.
Q When will the new system take effect? after the Spring 2019 semester?
A If you are referring to the integrations discussed today, and do not find them in your course
navigation settings, contact your Canvas admin. The integrations are available as long as the
college has requested the configuration, and completed the installation in Canvas.
