Kaltura’s video package for Moodle enables you to view, record, upload, publish, search, and share video directly from the Moodle environment. This can translate into improved student engagement, creativity and learning results. In addition it is easy to use for both faculty and students.
Kaltura provides a tool called Kaltura Capture for any user to capture video at their computer – students and faculty can access this tool. This can include webcam capture (talking head), audio only, screen capture (to demonstrate to students how to do something in software or on a website), or a narrated PowerPoint with or without a webcam.
Video that has been captured with other devices (mobile device, tablet, etc) and edited with other software (Camtasia, iMovie, etc) can also be uploaded into Kaltura. Kaltura Capture just provides a convenient tool for capturing and simple editing.
Faculty can add a Kaltura Media Assignment, which requires students to submit videos for a grade. Kaltura is also available in discussion forums so video responses to discussion prompts can also be achieved by using Kaltura.
In addition, faculty can upload videos as a resource which students must watch by embedding on a Moodle page or as a stand alone Kaltura Video Resource item on the main course page.
Kaltura provides analytics for every video. The Media Gallery (course level) Analytics page provides different engagement reports for students enrolled in a course: Dashboard, Media, Engagement, and Contribution. The Kaltura administrator can also provide more detailed reports upon request.
Kaltura provides an area in Moodle called the Shared Repository. Any video published into the Shared Repository from My Media (Institutional Level) is available to every user in Moodle.
