MyMedia: Avans own media platform

Avans University of Applied Sciences has its own media platform. MyMedia is the tool for viewing, publishing, creating and sharing video, audio or images. Also, this platform has purchased videos for use in education.

MyMedia is accessible via mymedia.avans.nl. This portal is similar to YouTube, but there are significant differences:

  • Avans manages the content
