Microsoft Stream

Microsoft Stream is a video-streaming service where people in the Missouri State University network can securely upload, view, organize and share videos. Stream can be used by people who are interested in using videos in the workplace to connect, collaborate, learn and share information. You can share videos within an organization or with a specific person or people, watch and share videos from your mobile device, and start and attend live-streaming events.

One of the most useful features of Microsoft Stream is the auto-captions generated for each video, and you can fully edit and customize these captions to create a video transcript.
