Adding Video to Kaltura

In Canvas, you can access Kaltura through the "My Media" link in your course navigation menu. If you have a video file saved on your computer, you can upload it to Kaltura, then share it with a Canvas course.

  1. Click the My Media link in the course navigation menu. It will be the sixth link from the bottom (unless you have edited this menu). Your Kaltura account will be displayed within Canvas as the "My Media" page.
  1. Click the Add New button at the top-right side of the page, then select the Media Upload option on its drop-down menu. The Upload Media page will be displayed.

  1. Add your media by dragging and dropping the file within the dotted box on the page or by clicking the +Choose a file to upload button and selecting the file on your computer. Your video will begin uploading.
  1. Go to the place in your course where you want to add your video. This can include an announcement, the description text box for a discussion or assignment, or a page that you create within a module.
  1. Click the external tools icon in the text box's menu (it looks like a blue V), then select Embed Kaltura Media from its options. A pop-up window with a list of the media in your Kaltura My Media account will open.

  1. Click the Select button to the right of the video you want to add. The window will close, and the video will appear within the text box.
  1. Click the blue Save button at the bottom of the page, or if you're creating a new announcement, discussion, etc. that you're ready to share with students, click the gray Save & Publish button.
