Launch of Media Hopper

Media Hopper

This week saw the official launch of Media Hopper, the University’s new hub for creating and sharing media.

Media Hopper is already being very widely used – as the launch video linked above will testify. In April alone: 400 new users,  600 uploads, 1700 hours of content viewed – and all this before the launch!

The content being uploaded is already a gloriously rich resource bank.
