What is Kaltura?

Kaltura is UC's enterprise video content creation, streaming and video repository tool. It is available within Blackboard, on college/departmental Kaltura Media Space (KMS) pages and as a stand-alone video creation software option (CaptureSpace).

Kaltura at UC

Students, faculty and staff have the ability to upload existing videos to Kaltura’s repository. Alternatively, videos can be recorded via CaptureSpace and uploaded into Blackboard. All colleges at UC also have a public-facing Kaltura Media Space (KMS) page, very similar to organizational pages on YouTube. As of August 2017, UC had over 45Tb of video stored in Kaltura. In fall semester 2016 (2168) alone, university students and faculty watched more than 87,000 hours of video on Kaltura. More information about the usage of Kaltura can be found on the Kaltura dashboards.

Kaltura’s CaptureSpace  

CaptureSpace makes creating videos for your courses or video assignments easy. Faculty and students can download stand-alone software to their Mac or PC to create:
     • Screen recordings 
     • Web-camera recordings 
     • And multi-camera multimedia presentations.

CaptureSpace allows you to enhance your videos with drawing/annotation tools and simple editing of your videos.

My Media (Blackboard/KMS)

The My Media area within Kaltura serves many purposes. It provides users with their own personal media storage and tools to create, edit, manage and share that media. There are two ways to access Kaltura’s My Media area, in Blackboard and via the main or college KMS.

(NEW!) Kaltura In-Video Quizzing

In-Video Quizzing embeds multiple choice questions at any point in a Kaltura video. Creators can easily add their own questions through a user-friendly interface. These questions are attached to the video and ‘travel’ with it wherever it is embedded or inserted into Blackboard.
