Now that you’ve added videos to Kaltura, we’ll talk about how to share them. You can share videos from Kaltura two different ways – generating a permalink (permanent link) or embedding the video directly into Canvas.
Generating a Permalink and Sharing
A permalink is a dedicated link to a webpage (permanent + link). In this case, Kaltura can give you a direct link to a specific video.
You cannot get a permalink from Kaltura inside Canvas. Go to “My Media” in your Media Space (video.cedarville.edu), and click a video.
Click the “Share” tab under the video.
Make sure “Link to Media Page” is selected, then copy the URL. You can then paste this anywhere you want someone to have direct access to this video.
Embedding videos in Canvas using My Media
Videos in your My Media in Canvas can be directly embedded into assignments, announcements, or pages.
Click the “Kaltura Quick Ingest” icon in the ribbon.
After clicking the icon, a Kaltura Quick Ingest “Let’s get started!” window will pop up.
To embed a video from your library, click “Add from Library.”
Canvas will show your Kaltura library.
Click the “Embed” button for a particular video to quickly embed it into your assignment, announcement, or page.
You’ll then see the video embedded in your assignment, announcement, or page.
Next time we’ll be diving into screen capture using Kaltura Capture, editing videos, and building playlists in Kaltura. In the meantime, if you have questions, please drop them below or email us at email@example.com. We’d love to help you out!
