Expanding education with online video

In the face of the rich-media revolution, educational institutions are using video to power every aspect of campus life. The challenge is finding media infrastructure that is agile, scalable, and cost effective.

Kaltura offers the market’s only open source video platform for education–a full-featured framework with live and on demand video apps for teaching and learning, distance education, campus websites, libraries and preservation, digital asset management, clubs and events, and more.

The platform is in use by over 60,000 global publishers, including leading universities and colleges, such as MIT, Cornell, Columbia, University of Southern California, Penn State, University of Virginia, University of Pennsylvania and more.

Key Products & Applications

Kaltura Management Console (KMC) – Media Management and Publishing Console

The KMC enables full management, publishing and syndication of rich media to campus websites, learning environments, or iTunesU. It can be used as an independent product and provisioned to LMS, media services, communications, or library teams managing live or on demand content. It also sits as an administrative interface behind other video applications.

Learning Management Systems Extensions

Kaltura integrates into all leading Learning Management Systems, with pre-integrated extensions for BlackBoard, Moodle, Sakai, Desire2Learn, and SharePoint. Teachers and students can easily upload videos or audio files, record from a webcam, integrate lecture capture files, submit video assignments, or create personal media collections – all within an easy-to-use, intuitive interface, and within the secure authorization and single-sign-on framework of any LMS.

MediaSpace™ (a YouTube® for your campus)

A fully customizable media destination site just for your campus or community! MediaSpace comes in 2 flavors: Publisher Edition, which mirrors content in the media management console and can be used to distribute lecture capture files or any media collection on campus, and Social Edition, which includes user accounts, uploading, and player embedding, and other collaborative features.

Content Management & Lecture Capture Systems Extensions

Kaltura includes out-of-the-box extensions for leading CMS platforms, including WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, BuddyPress, ELGG and more. In addition, Kaltura can be integrated into your lecture capture systems to add a content management layer that allows for easy embedding or ingestion of media from the lecture capture environment to the LMS, MediaSpace, or other applications.
