The Kaltura tool in Blackboard Learn has been making it much easier to add streaming videos to your course, whether you’re adding new high-definition videos or moving over your previous content from the Real Media Mole server. We’ve just upgraded the tool in Blackboard so that going forward, you can take advantage of these great features:

  • Mobile playback – videos now play on HTML5-capable devices like smart phones and tablets.
  • Simplified code in Kaltura Media tool items – easier to edit.
  • Screen capture tool – available in the My Media area, you can make screencast movies. (requires Java)
  • New 480p MP4 quality – better playback for Camtasia and other standard-definition videos.

If you haven’t started using Kaltura yet to post sounds or videos or enable your students to submit their own course media, contact TLP or check out the Knowledge Base.
