Kaltura MediaSpace is a robust, YouTube like options for video storage and publishing available to the whole campus community. It can be a bit confusing to understand the different terms and options so this is an illustration of how a Kaltura page works vs a channel.
A Kaltura page (or gallery) is a high level page that can be found in the site navigation. They can house multiple channels.
These are created by the IDAT team by request so please put in a ticket if you would like to discuss a page.
This screenshot shows the Software Training page found in the navigation dropdown under Faculty & Staff.
This is like a YouTube channel and multiple channels can be added to a page. Media can be added individually or as playlists.
Pages and channels can have separate viewing permissions. A page may be visible to any logged in campus user but have a channel that is only visible by a specific group on campus.
This screenshot shows the IDAT Software Training channel found on the Software Training page. A channel can have a description and cover image.
You can also create channels individually that are not published to a Kaltura page. These can be private to you or shared out with a link. Create a channel by clicking your user name and go to the My Channels option in the menu.
Multiple playlists can be created for channels. Create a channel playlist by choosing Create channel playlist from the channel’s action menu in the top right corner.
You can also create individual playlist for sharing and embedding. Create a individual playlist by clicking your user name and go to the My Playlists option in the menu
