Enhance Your Online Classroom Experience with Kaltura

2019-07-30

This tool has been useful in providing an easy to use interface to record live sessions, welcome announcements, discussion posts, and provide media enhanced student feedback.

Pros

Also, this platform allows you to upload and store media into your repository to later use across any of your online courses.

Cons

For example, after recording, the media library pops up and then my screen would freeze for a length of time.

Kaltura - Great Experience for the End User - Horrible Experience for a Systems Admin

2016-11-03

Kaltura is a valuable tool that integrates wonderfully with Canvas LMS.

Pros

Great product for end users, especially the integration with Canvas LMS.

Cons

Customer Support is the absolute worst. And the KMC is Flash based.

Recommendations to others considering Kaltura

If you're considering purchasing this product, think very hard about the complete lack of support you'll receive after signing the contract.

Pros

Another solution to host videos like Youtube, Vimeo. Easy interface.

Katura lacks in providing a good customer support. To play Kaltura videos you need have Flash on your system.

Kaltura

2018-10-08

Pros

It's a free way to get my video uploaded to a website or classroom platform.

Cons

The functionality for saving video and then uploading it to an outside source was a little confusing at first.

Easy to use video creator

2017-08-16

Easy to setup and use, helpful video tutorials, ability for users to changes playback modes with videos with slide presentations and webcam lectures.

Pros

Excellent tool for educators who need to create videos for online students. The ability to record both a PowerPoint presentation and webcam on the same screen is awesome. The option for each student to change the playback function is very helpful to their individual learning style.

Cons

Could be competitively priced as some other video creation products which offer a free version or a longer trial period.

Kaltura Capture is user friendly, but lacks editing capabilities

2018-11-27

Pros

Easy to capture screen and audio, also fairly easy to upload to Kaltura.

Cons

If launched from browser, it can be laggy. In addition, I am not personally fond of the lack of editing tools available - options to add multiple clips together would be useful.

Easy to use video production and sharing

2019-08-22

Pros

The program was easy to use with a minimal learning curve, produced fine quality videos (even with a laptop webcam), and walked you through sharing.

Cons

Took some effort to learn; find the video tutorials and that helps.
