How do I add videos and other media to my course with Kaltura?

Updated on

You can add media from Kaltura to the Content or the Course Gallery of your course:

  • In your course's Content you can add media to the corresponding course material.
  • When you use Kaltura Course Gallery the student has to use Activities to navigate to the Course Gallery and then search for the desired video.

Use Kaltura to add media to Course Content

  • Click on Content in the navbar of your course.
  • Go to the desired (sub)module.
  1. Click Upload/Create.
  2. Click Create a File.
  • Click Insert Stuff.
  • Click Add Kaltura Media.
  • Click Select behind the video you want to upload.
  • Fold out the menu for the video you want to use to choose the size of the video. 

A pop up window will appear with a preview of your video. 

  • Click Insert.

Your Kaltura video will now appear in the text box.

  • Add text below the video if desired.
  • Click Save and Close to publish the content file in the (sub)module and return to the previous screen. Click Save to save the video and remain on the current screen.

Please note: Is the video you want to add not visible? One reason could be that you are not the owner, but a co-publisher or co-editor. Kaltura automatically shows the videos you own (Media I Own). You can change the display to Media I Can Publish using Filters. 

Don't see the filter button? Enlarge the window by dragging the bottom right corner.
