Kaltura allows users to upload videos that will stream directly through their course in Drexel Learn. Although a video is only uploaded one time, it can be linked in multiple courses or added in multiple locations within a single course.
The most powerful feature of Kaltura use, through Drexel Learn, is the ability to obtain a report on each of the videos. Faculty can see who has watched which videos, how often and for how long.
When getting started with Kaltura, keep the following best practices in mind as you upload and manage your media:
- Add a course name and number, e.g. ENGL-101, to the Title field. Even if the video is associated with more than one course, choose one as the primary and list it here.
- Add the course name and number for every associated course in to the Tags field. This way you will easily be able to search for videos that are associated with a particular course.
- Upload each video only once. After a video has been loaded in to Kaltura, it can be added to any of your courses in Drexel Learn.
