In response to the growing need for robust video solutions in teaching and learning, Colby ITS is implementing a new service with Kaltura — an industry-leading enterprise video content management system.

Kaltura will serve to meet many video needs under one umbrella, including:

  • Webcam recording
  • Desktop screen recording
  • Simple video editing
  • Video hosting and sharing
  • Integrated quizzing
  • Moodle integration
  • Student engagement analytics

ITS is currently in the process of incorporating this platform with our systems.  Keep a lookout for an announcement once Kaltura is ready to use.  In the meantime, feel free to explore some of its educational offerings.
