Kaltura My Media and Canvas

This article covers how to use Kaltura My Media with Canvas.

Kaltura "My Media" can be accessed from the Canvas Dashboard or from within courses. It's possible to do all tasks available via the Dashboard within any course. Working within a course also allows you to insert/embed your My Media content in course-specific areas like Discussions, Pages, etc.

Accessing My Media through the Canvas Dashboard

Accessing My Media through the Canvas Dashboard allows you to create recordings, upload recordings, create video quizzes, access viewership analytics, request captions, and launch the video editor. To access My Media from the Dashboard, click on Account, then My Media.

Creating videos with My Media - Kaltura Capture:

Watch the video below to learn more about using Kaltura Capture. Click the diagonal arrows in the lower-right to increase the video size.

Inserting/Embedding a My Media Video in a Course

Create or edit the area you'd like to insert the video in, like a Page, Discussion, or other area in Canvas that allows for descriptive text entry (e.g. Assignment instructions, etc.). In the area where you would type a message, make sure your mouse cursor is blinking where you'd like the video to appear. In the image below, the cursor is in the upper-left of the text-box.

Click on the blue "V", or chevron, and select My Media.

Scroll through your videos until you find the video you'd like to insert. Click on the blue Select button.

Add any other text or changes you need (it may be none!), and click on the Save button, or Save and Publish where applicable.
