The Kaltura Building Block allows us to add powerful media tools to Blackboard, combing the best features of video sharing, webcam recording, screen recording, and more all within the Blackboard Learn environment. Creating and sharing multimedia learning content is easier than ever using these intuitive tools.
What do I use it for?
The Blackboard interface for Kaltura should be used for your original video content created for use in a Blackboard course. That original content could be videos recorded on your smartphone, webcam, or other video device. Other original content could be screencasts or videos created in other programs that you have saved to your computer in the past. There are also several tools now built into Blackboard that will allow you to create screencasts and webcam recordings right within Blackboard.
What isn’t Kaltura for?
Uploaded media should be your own, original instructional content. It is NOT for other people’s copyrighted works. Additionally, if you already have content in place on other sharing sites (such as YouTube or Vimeo) that you’ve embedded in courses you may want to leave it where it is, if it’s already functioning correctly. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or want to discuss what content should be relocated.
