Publishing Options Explained

The options available to users under Publishing are explained in detail below: 

· Expiry Date: Choose a date after which the media will no longer be available for viewing.

· Additional Owners: Specify additional owners (if any) for the media. One or more additional owners can be specified (userID’s should be separated by commas). The additional owner of the media has permissions to edit and / or delete the media. They do not necessarily have to be added to be registered users of Learning on Demand to have their userID in this field, but the user MUST be a registered illumira user to manage the media.

·  Add to list(playlist): A list of playlists that the user has already created will be displayed. The user then selects one or more playlists from the lists and the media will be immediately added to those playlists. Users can also create a new playlist by entering it in the textbox below the list and click on "Add" and then the "Submit" key.


· Search / Discovery Option: Allows a user to control the visibility of the uploaded  media on the website. Users will first have to select a collection to view the permissions available in this option. 

· List media in public searches and listings: Select this option to make the media visible in collection listings, search results and others. Note that this does not change the view permissions on the media itself. The media is usually listed with title, description and thumbnails in various listings.

· List media in searches for authorized users only:Selecting this option will make the media visible in collection listings to those users who   have access to 'view' the media (i.e. access given by sharing media with that user/users or a group or institution). For example, if a media that is being uploaded has group "CS101" assigned to it, then all members of the CS101 group will find this media in their collection listing or search results if they search for that media.

· Unlist media from search and listings: The media is blacklisted from collection listings and search results.
