Kaltura is a media management tool that allows us to better manage and deploy media in websites, through mobile devices, in Blackboard, and more.
Kaltura integrates with the tools we already use for media, including Blackboard, WordPress, and Camtasia Relay, improving the ease with which we make videos and other rich-media content available and accessible across all platforms and devices. Faculty, staff, and students can now easily record, upload, and share videos. Lync recordings can also be uploaded to Kaltura for easy sharing.
For more information regarding which files to upload to Kaltura, please visit our Storing Files at UIS webpage.
Additionally, Kaltura provides a wide variety of analytics and statistics – including, but not limited to, the number of times a video has been viewed, what devices/platforms/browsers were used to view the video, the drop-off point (how many viewers watched 25%, 50%, 75%, 100% of a particular video, the average length of time users spent viewing a video, and much more. (Special note: Currently, the average view time for users is 7 minutes 35 seconds.)
