Kaltura - Media Collaboration - Changing Media Ownership, Adding Editors and Publishers

This document covers the attributes of UW-Madison Kaltura Mediaspace's collaborators feature. With the collaborators feature, you are able to designate other users as owners, co-editors, and co-publishers of your media items. This is extremely beneficial if you work in a collaborative environment in which other people might need to manipulate or post media for you. An example of this might involve an instructor uploading a media item and then designating a local support person as a co-editor and/or co-publisher so that person can embed the content in a learning management system or departmental website.

For more information on the collaboration feature, permissions granted to co-editors/publishers, and how to add people as co-editors/publishers, please see the Kaltura document: Media Collaboration. To access

  1. Launch Chrome or Firefox, go to Kaltura MediaSpace, and login: mediaspace.wisc.edu. If you need more information on how to log in to MediaSpace please see Kaltura - How to Log in to Kaltura MediaSpace (UW-Madison) .

  5. Click Change media owner to change the media owner, or the + Add Collaborator to add a co-editor or co-publisher to the media item.
