Embedding Kaltura MediaSpace Playlists in Moodle


UW-Madison is adopting Canvas as the single, centrally supported learning management system, and discontinuing support for Desire2Learn (D2L) and Moodle. Access to D2L and Moodle will permanently end June 1, 2018. For information about retaining materials from D2L or Moodle, please refer to this document.

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.
