Moodle 3.0, 3.2: Insert an existing video from the Kaltura repository
Applies to: Moodle 2.8, 3.0, 3.2
Kaltura is a media management system that can be used to upload video files as well as to create webcam recordings. Videos in Kaltura can be viewed from phones, tablets, and computers. Kaltura is accessed through your Moodle course site.
Choosing an existing video from the Kaltura repository
First, add the resource, assignment, or text box that will contain the Kaltura video:
When the My Kaltura Media window opens, search for your video:
Type search text into the Search Media box. You can enter part of a video name, a tag, or part of a video description.
Press Enter or Return on your keyboard.
Switch to a different repository if necessary and search again:
My Kaltura Media contains videos you have uploaded previously to Kaltura, even in older versions of Moodle.
Kaltura Course Media Galleries contains videos from specific courses that have been put into the Kaltura Course Media Galleries. For instance, if a course designer has previously put three videos from a previous course into Media Galleries, you will find them here.
Shared Repository is a list of shared videos throughout the University of Minnesota
Click the triangle on the right side of the Select button to choose the size of your video and add it to your course. A preview page with the video will load.
