    Kaltura

    Kaltura is an excellent tool IF you have a large library of content. It can be pretty pricey so if you are early in launching an online program you may be better off waiting a few years until you've amassed a large enough catalog to warrant the investment in such a tool. The tool is best purchased by a University or company-wide vs having a single department try to find the budget for it. The unlimited plan pays for itself in most cases if you go this route. Secondly, you must be willing to invest time and resources into on-going training for your faculty and staff, especially for those who wish to create their own media and use the quizzing features.

    [Microsoft Powerpoint] is very well suited for preaching and teaching. I find it easier to describe what I am trying to get across with a graphic. [Microsoft Powerpoint] is the most effective way to present material. I have also used it do graduation videos for our preschool. The integration of music with the graphics provides a first rate presentation.

    Pros

    Kaltura

    • Very easy to use interface for uploading videos or capturing a screen recording. There are very few clicks required to get the media up and running. The video conversion process that happens on the back-end is fast and provides videos in device agnostic formats.
    • Integrates well with other systems, such as our Moodle LMS. This extends the capabilities of the LMS and also allows us to keep video/multimedia content organized in a central location (the KMC).
    • Kaltura can be connected to various processes within your organization. For example, we have a system in place that allows a video lecture in a classroom to be uploaded to Kaltura in a very easy manner.
    • User/role management is very important as some people on campus have more privileges to publish content than do others. We have Kaltura connected to our Single Sign-On solution for authentication and we can assign roles to specific people within the Kaltura software.

    • Powerpoint is excellent for structuring your ideas as you before you present them
    • Powerpoint should be used as s skeleton for your presentation for maximum effectiveness, rather than just "reading off the slides"
    • Powerpoint on a high DPI system with screencasting software and microphone allows you to record a high resolution product demonstration video quickly.

    Cons

    Kaltura

    • As it relates to the LMS integration, we would like to see improved workflow. But that may be just as much a Canvas issue as a Kaltura issue.
    • I would like to see the ability to add inline, anchored comments to the video timeline.
    • We are seeing issues with compatibility with certain browsers - especially Chrome. The faster Kaltura can move away from Flash the better.
    • The capture appliance (CaptureSpace Lite) needs to be reconsidered. It's not intutive enough.

    Microsoft

    • Customer support of Microsoft is not great
    • Ability to add video based templates to slides
    • Support to add custom fonts to PowerPoint is very difficult using font pack
    • Wizard to create custom templates should be there natively and should have more features as now we have to use workarounds to create templates

      The choice to renew our subscription does not belong to us, though we are able to provide input. We are aware of competitive products who have matured in the past three years, and we are aware now of alternatives to conventional plugin usage (LTI).

      Support Rating

      Kaltura

      The first line support agents seldom are able to diagnose or troubleshoot any problems that we have. These agents simply open support tickets in their system which are escalated to a foreign level 2 support agent which creates at least a day delay between reporting a problem and getting initial feedback. Any back-and-forth questions add at least another day delay.

      I've never contacted Microsoft support directly; I've only Googled the answers to my questions. But just the fact that there are thousands of posts on boards with people having random issues with PPT is a bit indicative of the state of the support for their product.

      Alternatives Considered

      Kaltura

      Kaltura was the best option given the sheer volume of people we needed to support digitally. Others were better in their own regard, but due to limitations in number of attendees or sessions, Kaltura was the best option

      Adobe Illustrator is an excellent software but it's not easy to use for [everyone without] having any training or previous experience in working with illustrator. Microsoft Powerpoint is very easy to use and it's fantastic as it saves time more than illustrator. Another thing is it takes small space while illustrator takes a significant amount of space in the business machine

      Return on Investment

      Kaltura

      • Managing video content with the KMC has greatly reduced the amount of hours previously needed to manage.
      • User issues ie: uploading video, viewing video has been greatly reduced.
      • Increased user engagement with using video in LMS courses. We currently have 6,929 videos on our system. Last month , 2/1/14, 17,623 videos were viewed at least 75% of the way through.

      • Helped reduce time we spend modifying and sharing back and forth different versions.
      • Saved us the frustration of having to work with an online program with limited functionalities.
      • Macros make it easy to share data in one excel file and automatically update presentation.
