What Is Kaltura? (Notes)

Kaltura is a media-management application, used for audio and video, that integrates with Canvas. This tool is available to instructors at the University of Pennsylvania as a pilot during the 2015-2016 Academic Year.

How Does It Work?

Users store or record media on their device in Kaltura. Then, this content goes to My Media, which is private to each user. Published media appears in the Media Gallery, which is available to anyone enrolled in a Canvas site.

Instructors, TAs, and Course Designers can add Kaltura media to anywhere in Canvas that has a Rich Content Editor, which includes Announcements, Assignments, Discussions, Quizzes, and Syllabus.

Students can add Kaltura media to Canvas Discussions, Assignments, or Pages (if student-editing is enabled).
