What is Kaltura Mediaspace?

Kaltura MediaSpace is a product UW-Madison uses to host and deliver media for educational use at UW-Madison. It is often described as "YouTube for UW-Madison." Faculty, staff and students can upload media content to UW-Madison Kaltura MediaSpace. Media can then be embedded in a Canvas course, website, or linked to. 

See DoIT’s Kaltura Mediaspace IT Service Page for a more detailed description of Kaltura Mediaspace.

Tool Functionality Details

Basic Functionality

  • Users can upload video content and share it with others via MediaSpace or Canvas integration.

  • Kaltura video content can be embedded in Canvas anywhere the rich content editor exists or via the Kaltura Gallery.

  • Kaltura Capture is a good solution for basic video capture and publishing.

  • Collaboration allows other users rights to your content, allowing them to perform functions such as editing and publishing.

Advanced Functionality

  • Basic video editing is available in Kaltura. Common uses are trimming and cutting, or clipping longer videos into multiple shorter videos.

  • TechSmith Camtasia is a more advanced video editing software that is licensed by UW Madison for faculty and staff. This comparison can help you decide which editing software to use.

  • Analytics can be viewed for MediaSpace Channels or the Kaltura Gallery in Canvas. Many metrics are available including plays, unique viewers and minutes viewed.

  • Kaltura videos can be turned into video quizzes. However, Learn@UW-Madison recommends only using video quizzes for student self-testing and preparation with no associated points or grade.

Use Cases

  • You can use Kaltura Mediaspace to host videos for a Canvas course.
  • If you host meetings online, you can upload recordings to Kaltura Mediaspace so that they can be accessed in the future.
