Please visit the following link to assure your computer meets the Mediasite requirements:

- High speed Internet connection with a download speed of 750 kbps

The courses and materials are provided through an Internet connection. Lectures are presented via Mediasite (see the Using Mediasite page) and include video along with other visual materials as seen in the classroom. Books, exams, and course packets are still paper-based. Online students have access to all other online resources offered by the university in the same manner as the on-campus students.
Generally access to online lecture material is not available to students who are not registered to the on-line section; however some content may be viewable during the first several days of the semester until late registration has been completed. Instructors may occasionally post a pre-recorded lecture for in class students in the event they are unable to attend class.
Recorded lectures are available for playback during the semester you are enrolled in, access may be available for several days after the official close of the semester to accommodate students under certain circumstances.
Recorded lectures are not available for download to personal devices unless prior arrangements and approval is granted by the course instructor and GOEE administration.
If you are experiencing playback errors please visit the Using Mediasite page and ensure your computer meets the system requirements: Minimum System Requirements
If your system meets the minimum requirements and the information on the Using Mediasite page doesn’t resolve the issue please contact GOEE Technical Support
Students that are not registered for the on-line section may have access for several days at the beginning of the semester while late registration and registration conflicts are resolved.
Sharing online-lecture content with future or in-class students violates academic integrity policy, please review the following policies: ASU Academic Integrity Policy
