Video Platform for Higher Education

Video can enhance teaching and learning, including online classes, lecture material, university web sites, marketing campaigns, and internal and external institution employee training programs at institutions.

Kaltura, an online video platform, enables institutions to add video and rich-media capabilities to web sites, learning management systems, internal digital repositories, libraries, and online social networks. The platform allows colleges and universities the ability to explore a new, interactive educational channel with the familiar flexibility and cost-effectiveness of open source software. The platform enhances teaching and learning at institutions.

Kaltura's framework is built to support third party technologies and services, allowing higher education institutions to customize their solution to meet their individual institution’s needs. Learn more about Kaltura.

Integrate Video in Sakai
In partnership with Kaltura, Unicon has developed a Kaltura Video Platform extension for Sakai, the Kaltura Video Tool for Sakai. This LMS extension allows teachers to easily add video content to course pages, maintain a personal content repository, create a synchronized video-slide presentation, and interact with their students using media. Students can also create a personal media gallery, submit video assignments, and edit content online.

The extension for Sakai made its debut at the Kaltura webinar, "Enhancing Your LMS and EDU Programs with Online Video from Kaltura." Unicon and Kaltura presented the extension for the first time to the higher education community.  Click here to view the webinar recording.
