To prevent student use of Kaltura in discussion forums, disable the option to
allow attachments from the discussion forum settings. This will remove the
bottom tool bar on the content editor, which allows users to embed images,
video, and attachments.
When requiring Kaltura use by students, provide them with supporting
documentation to help them learn how to use this tool.
For ease of use when combining text and embedded media, add and format text
before using Kaltura to embed media in the content editor.
Before adding any copyrighted material to your Kaltura media, please contact the
CityU Library for guidance on use of copyrighted digital media.
Kaltura inserts a table with a media file’s descriptive information along with the
media file wherever it is embedded. To remove the table, highlight it and delete it
from the content editor.
Media added to a course via the Kaltura Media Mashup tool is viewable by all
users in the course, but is not published (available in the Media Gallery) or
reusable to other members of the course. To publish videos to the courses Media
Gallery, please review the Kaltura Media Gallery tutorial.
The Video Presentation and Screen Recording tools are not working at this
time and should be avoided by instructors and students.
