Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) 

General

 

Can I share a created video with someone else?

Absolutely! If you are interested in collaborating with another Liberty University person, you are able to add a Co-Editor or a Co-Publisher. Learn more about Collaboration on Kaltura’s Support Site.

 

Can I edit a video after I publish it to Kaltura?

Yes, a video can be edited after being uploaded into My Media. When in My Media, choose the option to Edit the video. Then, look for the Trim option. More information can be found in the Kaltura Blackboard User Manual.

 

Is Kaltura a hardware or a software?

Kaltura is a software application, meaning that you are not required to purchase/own any physical technology for it to function. Also, Kaltura’s main functionality is web-based and will allow you to access it from any browser. Kaltura Capture, Kaltura’s media creation application, would require you to download the application to your device.

 

What technology do I need to use Kaltura?

No specific technology is needed to use Kaltura, either as a viewer or creator. However, in order to create a presentation, you will need to be able to connect to the Internet, record video and/or audio, and run the Kaltura Capture application. Most laptops, desktops, and tablets will meet this need.
