Reintroducing Kaltura

Are you ready for Kaltura? If not, don’t worry! We want to reintroduce you to Kaltura and remind you that if you want to get up to speed on Clemson University’s new all-in-one video tool, we will have dedicated training sessions with our Kaltura admin very soon. Read on to learn more!

What is Kaltura?

  • Ensemble, the current video service, is being retired and Kaltura is its replacement! Kaltura will not only store your entire video library, but it’s also the main tool for creating, editing, and sharing videos in your classes and with your colleagues. Kaltura is fully integrated with Canvas and has a handy, fully-functional desktop client. You can even collaborate with others on videos and upload them to a shared collection for easy access

What are the key features?

  • Easy integration with Canvas – Kaltura will have a dedicated button on the left-hand navigational menu for easy access. Kaltura will also be available in the Rich Content Editor menu ribbon. Just look for the electrical plug icon.
  • Easy Editing – Kaltura lets you make simple edits, such as trimming the ends of a newly made video, without having to leave the recording screen. Adding captioning is also easy, and can be done manually, by uploading a text file, or you can have Kaltura generate them automatically.
