Step 10

Your file will now be uploaded to Kaltura. However, it is important to note that the file may not be ready to insert into your course.

The Kaltura system takes all uploaded files and transcodes into various formats so that they will display correctly on different devices and at different qualities of resolutions.  Once the file has completed the transcoding process it will be visible via the Kaltura search feature inside of D2L To learn more about this process please visit the Inserting Media via Kaltura tutorial.
