Kaltura is a rich media streaming service that supports audio and video streams.
Kaltura has been integrated into D2L, CU-Boulder's online learning environment. This integration allows instructors and students to upload video and audio files into their D2L courses for sharing. Visit the Kaltura - D2L Integration page to learn more.
CU-Boulder departments or groups that need advanced control over their hosted media can work with OIT to gain access to the Kaltura Managment Console (KMC). This web-based interface provides delegated management of content to individuals within colleges, schools, departments and groups, including group based delegated administration to allow multiple people to share the management of the organization's content. Learn more.
OIT is currently piloting a closed captioning service for the CU-Boulder campus. All faculty, staff, and students can fill out the video captioning request form to have captions added to their videos. To learn more about the campus standards for accessibility and captioning, please review the ICT Standards draft.
If your video content is on a DVD, you will first need to convert the DVD to a digital file format before uploading it into Kaltura. If you need assistance with this process, first contact your department to see if an affiliate unit (i.e. ASSETT or ALTEC) can assist you, if not, refer to Norlin Library's Streaming Media Conversion & Upload Service.
*Note: The Kaltura service is for media that is being used on a regular basis by a course or for active collaboration, not for long term storage or archival. Inactive files will be subject to removal.
There are a number of long term storage options that you can use to store your videos.
|Service||Storage Size||Are there fees?|
|Google Drive||Unlimited (5 TB file maximum size)||None|
|OneDrive||Unlimited storage quota with 10 GB maximum file size||None|
|YouTube||No Limit (20 GB per video limit)||None|
|Dropbox||2 GB free||Purchase additional storage over 2 GB.|
When considering long term storage options, remember to obey all state and federal laws related to using copyrighted materials. Read more about copyright and fair use.
The hosting service is a common good service for the campus and there is no cost to take advantage of it.
