Step 3

Enter your search terms (course number (e.g., socy 4131), tag, title, or description) then click the Search button. All of the user’s uploaded media (stored in the Kaltura Media Repository) that matches the search entry will be displayed.

*Important Notes:

  • The Kaltura feature will search for media files that have already been uploaded into the system.
  • Searching by course number only works if the course number was entered as a title, tag, or description when the file was uploaded.
  • This search feature does not support partial word searching.  So if your search for “cat” did not return the expected file(s), try “cats”, “cats”, or “cats”.
