Kaltura: Charging for Access to Videos

Various groups at the University occasionally ask for a way to charge for access to video content. There are many ways to do this, but not many ways to do it that are centrally supported at the University.

Supported: Control access to videos with Destiny One, Canvas, and Kaltura

The best way to do this with centrally-supported tools at the University of Minnesota is to:

  1. Upload the videos to Kaltura, but be sure they do not include Protected Health Information (PHI) or materials where you are not the copyright owner.

  2. Publish those Kaltura videos in a Canvas course.

  3. Control access to the Canvas course using the Destiny One Registration System (DORS).

Unsupported but possible: use Vimeo.com
