Coming november 21, 2019

November 07, 2019 |


Recently, Kaltura Media Manager became Kaltura MediaSpace. The same great software and capabilities are included, but it is now integrated with the Minnesota State system. Additionally, a handful of new and exciting updates are coming to MediaSpace on November 21.


What Can You Expect? 

Update to Machine Captioning

Machine captions for videos will still be available to order at no cost under the Actions button, but captions will now be generated by automated speech recognition (ASR). This is a more accurate option than what was previously offered. An interactive transcript widget will also be available on all captioned videos to help guide viewers.


Insert Videos into D2L Brightspace

The option to add Kaltura videos into the HTML editor on D2L will be updated to provide more features. You'll be able to choose appropriate sizing for the video player and you'll be able to send student scores to the gradebook when using Kaltura's Video Quiz tool.


Accessibility Mode

Turn on the Accessibility Mode feature to make contrasts in MediaSpace more visible.


Video Hotspots

Use Hotspots to add a button at any time in your video that invites viewers to open a link to a specific website.


New Question Types for Video Quizzes

In Kaltura's Video Quiz tool, you'll be able to select "open question types." You'll also have the option to allow quiz retakes.
