Using Kaltura to deploy multimedia content in WebCampus | Digital Learning Office

Your My Media area has no storage limit and must be used for all videos in WebCampus. Video content should not be uploaded directly to the files section of your WebCampus course. This will quickly use up your lesson storage quota, and there are both student experience (video players) and accessibility issues with putting video content directly into the files section. We are unable to provide the required captions for the video hosted in the files area; all videos must be migrated to your My Media (Kaltura).

Important things to know about My Media:

  • You will see the same My Media content in all courses where you have it enabled; it is your personal repository.
  • You don’t need to download the same video multiple times, download it once and you can deploy it from My Media in different ways to any / all of your courses for any semester up to / unless it has been deleted.
  • My Media does not store the source video; videos are recoded for optimized webcasting and the original is deleted. You should keep your master copies of your video content.
  • Videos added to My Media are recoded before you can view them. Video processing times vary but it’s not immediate, expect to wait at least the length of the video you’re uploading for the video to be encoded and available. This time can be shorter or longer depending on the system demand. Do not deploy the video to the media gallery or to a page / task / discussion until it has finished processing and you have been able to preview the video.
  • Faculty content that has not been viewed for 2 years will be removed from the system.
  • Student content can be removed from their My Media areas 120 days after the end of the semester in which it was created / uploaded.
  • Safari users will need to turn off the “Prevent Cross-Site Tracking” privacy setting in order to take advantage of My Media and any other third-party tools in WebCampus. The use of Chrome or Firefox is strongly encouraged.
