  2. Once in Stream, click the "Create" menu to "Create a group"
  3. Name your group (i.e. FA 2018 BTM 100)
  4. In the "Add group members" section, search for all members of your course using their username (most accurately from MyNCU Course Rosters)
  5. Click "Create" to save after typing in all of your users/group members
    1. Remember to add any TAs or additional users who may not be on your course roster
  6. Create a channel only for this group
To link this upload option into your Beacon Learning course, click to enter the newly created group channel. Copy the URL in the address bar and paste it into your course (I typically use a label). Instruct students to use this link to upload their videos.
