Embedding Kaltura MediaSpace Playlists in Moodle


UW-Madison has adopted Canvas as its single, centrally supported learning management system. As of 6/1/2018, support for Desire2Learn (D2L) and most Moodle courses has been discontinued. Access to those courses has permanently ended. However, certain Moodle courses that are part of the Adanced Quizzing Content Functional Gaps project are still available on Moodle. Those courses are located on the Moodle Extension site.

This KB doc explains how to embed a Kaltura MediaSpace Playlist into Moodle.

MediaSpace playlists may be embedded within a Moodle course. Using playlists may save time when many related, but discrete audio or video resources need to be displayed on a page.
