The university has a YouTube channel and Vimeo account for posting videos created by and for UW-Parkside audiences. Departments or clubs may have their video posted on the channel if it meets the university's requirements.


Because videos are often too large to email, the best way to deliver a file is to save it on the OneDrive and share with your marketing coordinator or drop it off on a flash drive.

A podcast of this information is also available on the university YouTube Channel Check out our "How Do I" video on our YouTube channel.


Before you start a video project, be sure to talk with your marketing coordinator for tips, suggestions, and assistance.
