We use Kaltura's platform in order to integrate our platform with our customers who are using Kaltura on their end. It is being used solely by the Research & Development team, and only for such integration purposes. For each customer, we apply a specific integration according to their needs.

Kaltura is being used across the entire organization as the designated video streaming platform. It allows individual users or departments to upload, transcode, and share videos with others within our organization or publicly on the web outside of our organization. Videos are automatically transcoded to be viewable on the widest possible number of devices.

Kaltura solves multiple problems for our organization but our main demand has been sharing professionally produced video content created across all users in a seamless and easily searchable way. Our school has thousands of videos produced for our online graduate program but there was no easy way to share them in our LMS for other end users. Additionally, Kaltura has made it very easy for instructors and students to produce their own ad-hoc videos 'on the fly' from within our LMS (Blackboard).

It's being used as a video repository and eventual warehouse for legacy video formats in order to transiiton from analog to digital. It also integrates into Canvas so that students can add their own video assets to assignments.

Kaltura is used mainly for enhancing online courses, though it is also used in a small percentage for institutional communication. Kaltura is used to address a need for a turnkey streaming media system that can be used within the learning management system by users with low skills/experience.

The university was struggling with video content in the current LMS and began a search for a better alternative. At the time Kaltura was the only system of the ones that were available that supported HTML5 and that was the original reason for choosing Kaltura over the other systems. We currently use a full on-prem install of the Falcon KMC and the most recent Blackboard building block. Our LMS is also fully on-prem. We have also created a Drupal site where one of the colleges can create proffesional developement content and make it available for purchase using Kaltura to ingest and stream the video content. We use virtual servers for all of the applications except for transcoding, we use a physical box for transcoding. We have found that transcoding on a physical machine is much more efficient that virtually. The use of Kaltura as our main video ingestion, transcoding and streaming system in our LMS has been very successful. Our player is branded and different groups have other needs, like making content downloadable or captioning, that Kaltura easily makes available to adjust in the KMC. We do not have the ability to screen record yet and only recently been able to take advantage of recording directly to a webcam by all users including students. This has been extremely effectively used in discussion boards and with distance learning courses.

We use Kaltura, and more specifically MediaSpace, across our entire campus. It fills a need for us to have easily accessible video for a range of devices in and out of the classroom, while avoiding ads from alternative free services. We can also curate our content and provide a safe place for our faculty, staff, and students to hold their videos. Kaltura also gives us control over content distribution (especially copyrighted material) by only allowing videos to be played for a certain period of time or to a certain group of people. The Moodle assignment plugin extends our LMS' capability by allowing students to complete assignments that require them to record video.
