Kaltura is a valuable tool that integrates wonderfully with Canvas LMS. We have it set up for Teachers and Students to upload and publish videos. Kaltura has also launched In-Video Quizzing, so students watch a portion of a video, and then are prompted to answer a quiz question before they're able to continue watching. This interaction is awesome.
Kaltura's customer service, however, is horrendous! Out of all of the technologies I manage for Utah Valley University, Kaltura is by far the worst at responding to emails and fulfilling customer requests. For example, I sent an email to their customer support account and cc'd our customer success manager and technical rep over a month ago, using the instructions provided on their site, and have yet to receive any response.
Also, the Kaltura Management Console (KMC) is all Flash based. It's 2016. Seriously. Update the KMC.
Great product for end users, especially the integration with Canvas LMS.
Customer Support is the absolute worst. And the KMC is Flash based.
Allows for ease when organizing and developing a prenarrated presentation. Lets you upload images and take screenshots.
Short recording time so you have to make sure your narrations are well organized ahead of time and the initial software download takes a while.
Ease of use, good video quality, and more participation from my students watching the films for class.
I loved the ease of use compared to the old system we used that required login, the proper Java files, and a lot of patience. The video quality was excellent and the ability to set up pages in Canvas was a plus
I didn't not like anything about Kaltura. Our college decided to go with Ilos, and I never could figure out why. I liked them the same, and didn't find any problems with Kaltura.
Open source video platform provider.
Another solution to host videos like Youtube, Vimeo.
Katura lacks in providing a good customer support.
To play Kaltura videos you need have Flash on your system.
Kaltura is a good option for companies looking to host videos but is not comfortable using Vimeo or YouTube. Kaltura gives control of many aspects important to hosting videos. The web interface and upload process are straightforward and easy to implement into any organization.
Easy to setup and use, helpful video tutorials, ability for users to changes playback modes with videos with slide presentations and webcam lectures.
Excellent tool for educators who need to create videos for online students. The ability to record both a PowerPoint presentation and webcam on the same screen is awesome. The option for each student to change the playback function is very helpful to their individual learning style.
Could be competitively priced as some other video creation products which offer a free version or a longer trial period. However, the education discount is nice.
Great to use for capturing and posting lectures
Takes a lot of trial and error to learn how to use effectively
