Kaltura is a video platform for instructors and students to share video content. Kaltura features include the ability to upload, publish, and search videos, embed video directly in a Canvas course (that can be reused across multiple courses), and create shortened clips from existing video content.
How are faculty using this tool?
Joseph Anthony uses Kaltura in blended and fully online courses, where a large portion of the online content is comprised of short (5 to 10-minute) videos. Joseph finds Kaltura very intuitive for uploading and then embedding into a course, and makes it easier to keep control of the video (i.e. makes it harder to download).
How do I get started?
Instructors and students can use Kaltura from anywhere within a Canvas course that has a Rich Content Editor. Using the 'Embed Kaltura media' button in the editor, you can upload videos to Kaltura and embed videos within your course content. You can also upload directly to your Kaltura account from the 'My Media' section of any Canvas course.
