You can use Kaltura integrations to present rich media content in the Original Course View. You can use Kaltura to host and share videos, images, and audio files with course members.

Specifically, instructors can use Kaltura in these ways in Blackboard Learn:

  • In a content area, learning module, lesson plan, or folder, select Build Content to access the menu and select Kaltura Media.
  • When creating course content, instructors can embed video content directly from Kaltura into the editor using the Insert Mashup and Kaltura Media option.

The Kaltura integration is powered by Blackboard Building BlockTM (B2) Technology. Refer to the Kaltura documentation for information on setting up their B2 for your institution.
