Chalk - Videos - Add Streaming Media to Your Courses (Instructors)

This article introduces you to Chalk's methods for inserting and managing videos in your courses.

Using a tool called Kaltura on Chalk you can upload streaming video and audio to your course or record video using a webcam. Chalk will directly embed the streaming media on your course page where it can be played by your students. You can also add uploaded streaming videos to a Course Gallery, and you can manage your videos from there. While you may be able to insert video and files on your site using other methods, the Kaltura service offers a secure way to stream media for better playback, secure media access, and manage these sources for use on multiple sites.

When you add a video or audio to your course or create a video clip, it will appear in that course and also in an area in Kaltura's space called My Media. My Media is a collection of all of your Kaltura-uploaded files. You can use this content in any of your courses. The media you upload or create from a clip are only available to you for adding to courses. While others can see videos and audios you’ve inserted in courses and made public, they cannot access your personal media collection.

For step-by-step instructions on using videos, select any of the resources below.
