This document contains the terms with which UW users must comply to use the Kaltura service.
UWS acquired Kaltura as a Media Management System for instructional use. The Kaltura MMS (hereafter referred to as the service) provides uploading, managing, and sharing of rich media to eligible members of the UWS academic community, in support of scholarly, curricular, and extra-curricular pursuits. The service is intended to work closely with the current Learning Management Systems while leveraging the full capability of the product. D2L integration will be the first phase of implementation. Additional services will be pursued thereafter.
UWS faculty, staff, and degree students with current and active campus-authorized credentials (e.g. NetID or equivalent) are eligible to access and use Kaltura; this excludes non-active affiliated members of the UWS community. Prior to leaving the University community, and thereby excluded from accessing the service, users may export their content or choose to delete it.
Responsibility for Content/Content Ownership
Kaltura MMS content may be visible to participants within a course and others at the discretion of the content author. Uploaded content can be made private. Each piece of content is associated with an individual's campus-provided credentials. This individual, hereafter known as the 'primary author', is responsible for the content and associated data uploaded to the Kaltura MMS System.
Both individual and course content should reflect the positive and respectful learning and working environment of UWS within which basic rules of conduct for the individual campus community, as well as the general UWS community, prevail. Such rules of conduct are articulated in the individual campus policies and guidelines for faculty, staff and students.
Copyright permissions are necessary regarding original Kaltura MMS content as well. Any use of UWS Kaltura content, or works derived from that content, should be attributed to the original faculty member, staff member, or student and UWS.
UWS collects certain non-personally identifiable information to evaluate the manner in which Kaltura MMS is used in order to improve the service. This may include other web analysis data to measure and analyze usage. This information may be shared with UWS stakeholders in summary.
Non-Commercial Use of UWS Kaltura MMS
UWS Kaltura MMS provides access primarily for instructional purposes only. You may not sell, profit from, or commercialize from UWS Kaltura MMS. UWS considers any use of the service and its content for the purpose of deriving profit from or promoting a profit-based enterprise to be prohibited commercial use, and includes, but is not limited to, advertising to generate profit, marketing, or promoting for-profit ventures.
The media content served by the service does not in any way constitute
official University of Wisconsin System content. The views and opinions
expressed in the content are strictly those of the primary authors. The media
content have not been reviewed or approved by UWS. UWS makes no
representations or warranties of any kind, express or implied, as to the content
hosted by this service. UWS will not be liable for any damages of any kind
arising from the use of or inability to use of the media content hosted by
this service. Questions or concerns about the media content should be
directed to the primary content author.
The service is provided as a hosted service by the vendor. Planned maintenance outage will be communicated in advance. Best efforts will be made to schedule planned downtime between 00:00 and 7:00 CST. Unplanned outages will be posted to the UW System Outage page (https://outages.wisconsin.edu) and communicated through other support channels by individual campuses.
Campus users should contact their individual campus help desk as a first line of support unless otherwise directed by your campus.
