What is Kaltura MediaSpace?

Kaltura is an online multi-media tool that allows users to create, edit, stream, manage, access, and collaborate on multi-media projects. The tool can be used to easily capture audio and video, as well as deliver related documents or files. Faculty can easily integrate interactive quizzes into their videos and the system automatically provides captioning. The tools can be accessed two ways, though options may vary depending on the access point:

  1. Use Kaltura MediaSpace Integration with courses in D2L/CourseDen - to share with students only (by default)
  2. Use Kaltura MediaSpace via a public facing website - currently read-only access has been granted

*Kaltura MediaSpace is currently in testing as of May 1, 2017. We anticipate providing this service campus wide in June.
*All documentation lists instructions on how to use these tools within CourseDen. You can use any of the links provided below for more information.

Support Information

UWG provides a Kaltura MediaSpace account for all UWG faculty, staff, and students. However, faculty and staff who have instructor access in D2L/CoursDen can use all of Kaltura MediaSpace's functionality, but instructors can only currently publish privately to their students in CourseDen. In contrast, UWG's public Kaltura MediaSpace website currently only hosts public media posted by UWG Online or UWG University Communications & Marketing. In the future, functionality on UWG's public Kaltura MediaSpace website may be expanded.
