UW-Madison Kaltura - Video Package for Brightspace (D2L) Overview

Within D2L you can provide a rich media experience by embedding media from Kaltura MediaSpace into your course. Although Kaltura offers an official video extension for Brightspace (D2L), it is not enabled at UW-Madison because of incompatibilities between the two platforms. These incompatibilities may result in security issues and feature degradation.
