This document provides some basic information about the UW-Madison Kaltura MediaSpace service.

What is UW-Madison Kaltura MediaSpace?

Some terminology (small distinction that can help avoid confusion):

  • Kaltura - The MediaSpace vendor; sometimes their brand name is used synonymously with their tool.
  • MediaSpace - The media hosting/delivery tool and website (for UW-Madison this is https://mediaspace.wisc.edu/)

Kaltura MediaSpace is a cloud-based product developed by Kaltura which facilitates the conversion and distribution of various audio and video media formats. Faculty, staff and students can upload media content to UW-Madison Kaltura MediaSpace, at which point it is automatically converted and optimized for hassle-free distribution on the web. Media links and embed code are provided so that you can share your media with others.

UW-Madison Kaltura MediaSpace is located at https://mediaspace.wisc.edu/. Simply use your campus NetID credentials to log on. Please note, to assign privileges to other users, they must have logged into https://mediaspace.wisc.edu/ at least once.

Integrations with Desire2Learn & Moodle

Both the UW-Madison Canvas and Moodle learning management systems feature integration with Kaltura MediaSpace. This integration offers some functionality of Kaltura MediaSpace (record, upload, publish, search, and share) directly from within the learning management system environment. The D2L integration was turned off due to numerous issues, but you can still use embed code from Kaltura MediaSpace in D2L pages and content. Please note that for complete functionality, it is recommended you use https://mediaspace.wisc.edu/
