Submitting Student Assignments with Kaltura
Kaltura media can be used for Blackboard assignments that receive grades in multiple ways. Any
standard discussion board, blog, wiki, or journal that you might already use in Blackboard will
give you access to the WYSIWYG toolbar. From there you can create webcam records,
screencasts, upload local media, and access the My Media repository.
Students can add or create media as a Mashup anywhere in Blackboard where the WYSIWYG
toolbar appears.

Using the Mashup button on the WYSIWIG toolbar gives you all the same tools as with all Kaltura
media. You can upload or create content from within the content item with the Add New button
or search and select from My Media.
You can add media for an assignment, discussion board, blog, etc. anywhere that the WYSIWYG
toolbar appears, or you can also add it through the My Media module on the Blackboard landing
page. Adding any media in any Blackboard area will also add it to your My Media list.
Clicking the Add New button allows you upload a file or record new media using CaptureSpace.

item later.

Kaltura will upload the file then add it to the content area you’re in and also to your My Media
list. You will then have the opportunity to change the title, add tags and other metadata, and
more even while the video is uploading and processing.

files to your media gallery
you can also record
