Testing: Kaltura for Blackboard

I'm currently engaged in testing out Kaltura, a platform for video, as part of a 3 year extended pilot at NUI Galway. It has a rather nice integration with Blackboard, which we're hoping to launch within the next few weeks. If any members of staff are using or creating their own video and are interested in being part of an initial pilot study in the next few months, please get in contact with me.

For the moment, I'm testing the embed feature. So, here's a short video recorded during our guerilla video workshop with the participants in the PG Cert in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.

Very interested to read this - we are investigating Helix and Sharestream at Cardiff. The former has no integration with Blackboard, the latter has some. We're currently testing the building block on our development server, before rolling out and enabling it with a group of pilot users.

Love the soundtrack on the video, by the way!

Thanks for commenting, Simon.

I understand that Durham is also using Kaltura within Blackboard.

All going well for us, so far.
