What can I do with Kaltura?
Both you and your students have full access to Kaltura, so you can use it to create audio and video clips to share with your students, plus you can have your students use it to create media as part of an assignment.
How does Kaltura work?
Kaltura is integrated with Blackboard, so you can access your account through the My Media widget on the Blackboard homepage. Also, you can log in to your Kaltura account at video.maine.edu using your maine.edu credentials.
Kaltura has three main components that you can use to add audio and video to your Blackboard course.
- My Media allows you to access, add, edit, and share media in your Kaltura account. Also, if you’ve already created video or audio files for your students, you can upload them to My Media for easier sharing within your courses.
- CaptureSpace is Kaltura’s desktop recorder. It allows you to record new audio and video files from your computer and/or capture documents or websites open on your desktop.
- Media Gallery allows you to organize all of the media for a single course on one page.
