Managing your Mediasite Profile

Profile settings in Mediasite include: modifying your display name, presenter information and notifications you receive as a presenter and moderator.

The Presenter Information added to your profile automatically appears in presentations when you begin by clicking Create Presentation within the MyMediasite Portal. This is only true for presentations created after you modify your profile and presentations started through the MyMediasite Portal.
