Kaltura is a video-streaming service at Rutgers, integrated into Canvas and Sakai. It could be compared to a private YouTube for Rutgers. Faculty, you can upload videos you’ve made previously, then share them with links or by embedding in a course page. Kaltura also includes tools to create new videos and presentations including combinations of webcam video, audio, slideshows, and screencasts.

IMPORTANT: don’t use these instructions if you want to share video with students in Canvas or Sakai site! Return to Multimedia support.
