3C Media Solutions is a CCCCO grant-funded institution that offers multiple digital services to community college faculty and staff. With your free account, you can upload and share many types of files including documents, powerpoint, PDF, mp3’s, and all types of video. See the 3C website for a full list.
3C also offers “share links” a-la dropbox for your files. This makes putting large files into blackboard a matter of sending students the share link.
There are a number of How-To videos and FAQ’s on the 3C site. Click here to visit the 3C Media Solutions support site.

What would I use 3C Media Solutions for?
There are many uses of this service. Here are a few scenarios that may be applicable.
The Rio Hondo LMS application has a file size limit. This is fine for most office documents but doesn’t suffice for large PDF’s, audio, or video files.
You can upload individual files or a folder of files to your 3C account and send a download link via blackboard.
You can upload audio or video and send students a link to view or listen to the media in their browser.
3C is offering an alternative to youtube. You upload your videos and send students the links. There is no fear of sending them advertisements or getting caught up “browsing” the follow-up recommendations.
3C has a relationship with CCC Confer and they are able to automatically post your presentation upon request.
