Part 4: Fall 2016 Labs

45 Kaltura Mediaspace with Rob Beattie and Caitlin Iverson — 10.14.2016

Caitlin IversonRob BeattieLast week’s Active Teaching Lab was about the campus tool for video hosting and streaming, Kaltura Mediaspace which integrates well in our LMSs. Rob Beattie and Caitlin Iverson, from the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies and UW Design Lab, shared how they use it for student projects.


  • Unlimited space to host private course videos so you won’t run out of space, as you might if you try to host media in Canvas, D2L, Moodle, etc.
  • Integrated (login, course access, etc.) with Canvas, D2L, and Moodle.
  • Fairly easy to learn (for you and students).
  • Offers In-Video Quizzing for knowledge checks.
  • Offers flexible screen-capture options, as well as “talking head”/screen capture options.
  • YouTube might be an easier/better option at times — especially for authentic student-produced video assignments they might want to share with friends/family outside the course.

If you’re interested in learning more on how to get up and running with this tool, watch the videos below and review the session’s Activity Sheet.
