Kaltura is a video hosting and streaming service integrated with Bruin Learn which connects to "My Media" and "Media Gallery.” It is available for faculty and students to use in their courses, without restrictions to file size or storage limits. Kaltura is the recommended tool for storing and sharing media, offering automatically generated captions, enhancing accessibility for all users.
Kaltura video, audio, and images can be embedded anywhere within a Bruin Learn course where the Rich Content Editor (RCE) is available. This includes Pages, Assignments, Quizzes, Announcements, and Discussions.
Zoom cloud recordings are automatically copied to Kaltura and are available indefinitely, (Zoom cloud videos will auto-delete after 120 days after they have been recorded). These recordings are stored privately, and can be found with the rest of your media under the Account menu in Bruin Learn, inside “My Media.”
Kaltura media can be Published and made available in the Media Gallery section of a course. This includes videos, video playlists, and video quizzes. You can also use the browser based Quick Recorder or the desktop Kaltura Capture app to create and edit new media.
Kaltura is paid for by the University. It is available to instructors and students at no cost.
