Kaltura: Video streaming

The tool used for storing and streaming online video and audio files in UdL virtual campus is called Kaltura

NOTE:  It is important to know that at this time both of its main content management tools ("My Media" and "Media Gallery") are not available by default in the UdL virtual campus sites, but My Media tool can be added by following these simple steps (in catalan), and Media Gallery can be activated from site's configuration tool on each site where you want to make it visible.

 

Using the tool: "My Media" and "Media Gallery"

If you plan to dig deeper into the use of Kaltura and want to have more control on the videos or audios uploaded by you to Kaltura, you can read more information about each of these two tools in the next sections, so you can discover in depth what possibilities they can open for your particular needs:

My Media

 

This is a tool teachers can add on your personal site inside the virtual campus, and it gives you the the ability to upload multimedia items that can be embedded and shared in other places (into the enunciaton of an activity or a lesson, for instance). In this place you can find all the video and audio files that you have uploaded using your user profile.

Media Gallery

 

In the virtual campus sites, you can add a series of playlists containing the multimedia items uploaded via this tool or that can be selected by reusing the ones already uploaded to "My Media" in your personal space, so all members of a site will gain access to them.
