Kaltura Students Getting Started

Students' Access to Kaltura

Kaltura is available to students in most bCourses sites;  unless the instructor has explicitly disabled My Media and Media Gallery,  students should see My Media and Media Gallery  in the site navigation menu. 

My Media is a personal repository of media that is non-course specific (i.e. the same personal media is available from different courses and locations whenever you go to My Media); all students have their own My Media.  Students can also take advantage of the  Zoom to Kaltura integration: any Zoom meetings that are recorded to the Cloud will be copied to their My Media.

Media Gallery is bCourses site-specific and contains content that the instructor has chosen to add to the site; instructors may also set their site's Media Gallery to allow students to contribute to it.
