Making unitedstreaming Yours

As you may have discovered by now, Discovery Education unitedstreaming is designed to bring you content fast and make learning on-demand.

But did you know that you can customize your unitedstreaming as well?

That’s right, by clicking on the Preferences link at the top of your toolbar you open the door to making unitedstreaming yours.

The Preferences page contains two tabs.  The first tab, General, gives you the ability to change your password and set your default settings.  This is a great place to come if you are Mac user and want to change your default player from Windows Media player to Quicktime. 

To select your default media player, scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and click in the circle next to the blue Q, save your changes, and presto bango you have now made Quicktime your media player of choice.

Pretty cool right?  Well as the old addage goes (put on your ear muffs Language Arts Teachers) "You ain’t seen nothin’ yet!"

Click on the second tab, My Home Page, to make your own unitedstreaming home page.  You can populate your page with calendar events, featured videos specific to your subject area and grade level, and find out what new videos were just published to unitedstreaming.  You can also turn on a tips and tricks box and even find out what teachers from around the country are viewing!My_preferences

And, should you change your mind and want to customize your page differently its no problem, simply uncheck your choices and select new ones.

I hope you enjoy making unitedstreaming yours.

Talk to you soon,
Matt Monjan
Discovery Education, unitedstreaming

    I also recommend opening your links and dropping the URL of your Unitedstreaming homepage to your tool bar. Then you can access it with ONE click!
