Service Summary

Kaltura is a video management tool that allows faculty and students to create, host, and share video and audio inside the Blackboard Courses environment. Users upload audio and video directly to Blackboard using the Kaltura Media Mashup tool. Media uploaded resides in the users My Media Library, a personal cloud based storage area. In the My Media library, users can choose to manage their media across all their courses, create screen recordings, or capture web cam video.
