The following documentation demonstrates the process of uploading a media file via the Kaltura widget from the D2L My Home page.
If your video content is on a DVD, you will first need to convert the DVD to a digital file format before uploading it into Kaltura. If you need assistance with this process, first contact your department to see if an affiliate unit (i.e. ASSETT or ALTEC) can assist you, if not, refer to Norlin Library's Streaming Media Conversion & Upload Service .
Log into D2L and the My Home page will appear.
A file selector window will appear. Locate your file and click Open.
Carefully fill out the Title, Tags, Category, and Description fields. When finished adding you desired informartion, click Next.
*Note: It is highly recommended that users input the course number or your IdentiKey into either the tags, or description field so that the file can be easily found by the search engine.
Your file will now be uploaded to Kaltura. However, it is important to note that the file may not be ready to insert into your course.
The Kaltura system takes all uploaded files and transcodes into various formats so that they will display correctly on different devices and at different qualities of resolutions. Once the file has completed the transcoding process it will be visible via the Kaltura search feature inside of D2L To learn more about this process please visit the Inserting Media via Kaltura tutorial.
