Faculty and staff can create videos and video quizzes in Kaltura and embed them into their courses, among many other tasks.

ITS supports Kaltura. Kaltura is a cloud-based media capture and storage application that facilitates the integration of multi-media content into the UConn learning management system, HuskyCT. With Kaltura, instructors at UConn can record and publish audio and screen captures from the classroom without making prior arrangements with the ITS’s Academic IT staff.  In addition, recordings can be made from personal computers in the office or home. Self-Service Recording enables presenters to perform ad hoc recordings in high-tech classrooms, office, or home, and retrieve their files from UConn’s Kaltura online portal. 

ITS has recently added Self-Service Live Streaming, which enables presenters to share content in real-time, no advance notice required. Self-Service Live Streaming is currently available in some Storrs campus classrooms. ITS is working to equip all classrooms with this feature in the future.

For instructions on how to access Self-Service Live Streaming, review the article, Self-Service Live Streaming.
