Note:
To complete these procedures, you must be assigned a role having the necessary permissions. If you're not sure what your role is, see the "Role" column in the Roster tool. For permissions, see ARCHIVED: What can I do in read-only Oncourse?

With the Podcasts tool, you can restrict access to your podcasts to site participants only, or you can make them available to the public. You can also edit permissions, and define who is allowed to create, revise, and delete podcasts.

Managing access to your podcasts

  1. From your site's menubar, click Podcasts.
  2. Near the top, click Options, and choose one of the following:
    • To provide public access to your podcasts through a podcatcher, choose Display to non-members (publicly viewable).
    • To restrict access to site participants only, and to disable access through a podcatcher, choose Display to site.
  3. When you're finished, click Save Changes.

Note: This will affect access to all of your podcasts.

Editing permissions

To edit permissions from within the Podcasts tool:

  1. From your site's menubar, click Podcasts.
  2. Near the top, click Permissions.
  3. On the "Permissions" screen, you can add permissions based on participant roles. Permissions that are set in Resources cannot be changed in the Podcasts tool. Available permissions are as follows:
    • Create podcasts
    • Read podcasts (i.e., view or download podcasts)
    • Edit any podcasts
    • Edit own podcasts
    • Delete any podcasts
    • Delete own podcasts
    • Read hidden podcasts
  4. When you're finished, click Save.

To edit permissions that are set in the Resources tool:

  2. On the "Resources" page, click Permissions.

    Note: Permission changes made from this location will affect all items in the Resources tool. To edit permissions for an individual folder, such as the Podcasts folder, see ARCHIVED: Changing the permissions for a folder in Resources.
