Kaltura: the basics

Course description

Kaltura is the video and media platform in FLO. 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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

You have two options for doing this workshop.

  • Take it online at your own pace (see below for how to access the site).
  • Attend a face-to-face workshop* (enrol for an 'Upcoming event').

*If you decide to attend a face-to-face workshop, please bring a laptop or device if you have one.

If you are planning on bringing your laptop and following along, experience from recent workshops tells us that installing the Kaltura Desktop Recorder during the workshop can be time consuming. If you’re interested in following along on your own device, we recommend that you install the Kaltura Desktop Recorder before you attend the session.
