Kaltura (My Media): the basics
Kaltura is the video and media platform in FLO's My Media. It is used for storing and sharing videos for learning, and also includes a desktop recorder for recording videos from your computer.
There are three parts to Kaltura:
- Desktop recorder
A tool that you can install on you computer to make simple videos using your webcam/audio or screen capture. You can also record drawings and annotations, and it has a whiteboard. Once you’ve created a video using the desktop recorder you can upload directly into MyMedia.
- My Media
Your personal media repository, which you access via FLO or upload from the desktop recorder but only you can access it – it’s private to you.
- Media Vault
The Media Vault belongs to each topic in FLO. If you publish a video from My Media to a Media Vault in FLO, then the video becomes accessible to any staff who have an editing role in that topic.
