On July 7th access to YuJa through Blackboard will be disabled. If you have any videos that you plan to use during the second summer term, please make sure to download them from YuJa now. You can then upload them to our new Video Management system, Kaltura. You can access your Kaltura My Media folder by using the link under Tools on your Blackboard Home tab. For a quick walkthrough of the process of transferring files watch this video.
Kaltura will begin an automated transfer of videos to their system on July 7th and expect the process to take about two weeks. Videos not moved to Kaltura before July 7th will not be available during the first part of the second summer term.
Kaltura’s portfolio of technologies includes lecture capture, live streaming, and video management. This will allow faculty to continue to create and upload their own recordings to share with students. Kaltura includes a built in screen capture program and allows for the uploading of videos created with other software.
To help you prepare for using Kaltura this fall, the A-State Faculty Center will be hosting two sessions on the new video management system during our Summer Institute. If you would like to learn more about Kaltura please attend one of the Creating and Organizing Videos for Online or Hybrid Courses sessions. Registration for the sessions can be found on our Summer Institute schedule.
If you cannot attend in person you can attend the sessions via Webex.
Recordings will be available after the session.
If you have any questions about this transition, please contact us.
