Add Kaltura videos through the Kaltura library

The PlayPosit integration with Kaltura allows institutional partners to add interactivity and accountability to all hosted video content. Once the integration is completed by the administrator, instructors/designers can stream Kaltura content in PlayPosit following the steps below:

  1.  Navigate to the PlayPosit dashboard and click Add New Bulb
  2. On the Video Source menu, select Kaltura to access your library of hosted videos. Depending on how your institution has opted to set this up, you will have access to all content or only the content owned by you.

  3. Note: If the Kaltura button is not available to you, this means your institution has not purchased Kaltura or Kaltura has not been set up by your administrator.

  4. Find a Kaltura video in PlayPosit by entering a Search/Filter term or scroll through the list of videos.
  5. Once the video is selected, change the title, add captions, and trim/crop the video. Then click Done.

  6.  Interactions can now be added to the Kaltura-hosted video. To learn more about building a PlayPosit Bulb, click here.
