Kaltura Media Platform

 

 

Kaltura is a media storage platform that allows our faculty and students to create and upload videos for classwork. It can be used for creating lecture capture videos (replacing TechSmith Relay), uploading videos you create, uploading video recordings from Zoom or Microsoft Teams meetings, linking to Youtube videos, provides analytics as to viewing habits, add quiz questions into the video (even Youtube) and provides mechanical captioning. It integrates with iLearn to allow faculty and students to easily share videos.

NOTE: We recommend using Kaltura to upload meeting recordings from Zoom and Teams to iLearn.

VIDEO CONFERENCING

We currently support two options for video conferencing. Both options are cloud-based technology that can be used by faculty, staff, and students to interact with others using video, audio and screen sharing capabilities. All you need is an account, a capable device and the internet. On a desktop computer (Mac, Windows or Linux) all you need is an internet connection and a web browser.
