Kaltura Video Platform to Replace MediaCore

Our media streaming server provider, MediaCore, has been purchased by another company. As a result, MediaCore will be shutting down this summer. To prepare for this, we’ve partnered with another provider, Kaltura Video Platform. Kaltura will allow faculty, staff, and students to easily store existing multimedia projects AND create high-quality multimedia projects. With Kaltura, you can record audio/video, record screencasts, and create lecture captures using PowerPoints. Kaltura works on laptops, desktops, and mobile devices. A Kaltura iPad app will also be available for use.

Faculty can use Kaltura to create lecture capture videos, conduce voice-over PowerPoint presentations, and record in-class demonstrations. Students can use Kaltura to record multimedia projects for assessment. Everything created in Kaltura can easily be embedded in Canvas. Embedding recordings into Canvas is ideal because Canvas, like other learning management systems, isn’t built to host media.

Some important information you need to know about the switch:

When will this transition occur?

Media Core will be turned off in Canvas for the 16SU/16SU1 term (early May). Kaltura will be integrated and used in its place.

What happens to all the items I’ve stored in MediaCore?

LDT moved all your items (audio, video, etc.) into Kaltura. We assigned those artifacts to you, so when you access Kaltura through Canvas, all your items will be accessible to you.

What will I need to do to make my artifacts visible to students?

LDT moved all the content for you, but we only relinked the videos in our online courses. If you have MediaCore videos embedded on pages in your on-ground courses, you will delete the old MediaCore videos and relink to your vides in Kaltura. This is a very easy process, and should only take a few seconds per video.

How can I learn how to use Kaltura?

View this recorded webinar for an overview of Kaltura. Or, please contact LDT to schedule a one-on-one consultation.

LockDown Browser iPad App Message

The issue occurs when students try to access a Canvas quiz using LockDown Browser, a message appears for some students (message below). The affected students are in the LockDown Browser iPad app when the message appears.

Message – Respondus LockDown Browser Required
This quiz requires Respondus LockDown Browser. Please launch Respondus LockDown Browser to take this quiz or view your quiz results.

The recommended solution is for students to close down the LockDown Browser app completely, navigate to Settings, and then Safari. From here, in the Privacy & Security section, students should choose either Allow from Websites I Visit or Always Allow from the Block Cookies list. While in the Safari settings, it’s recommended students tap Clear History and Website Data.

In addition, as a best practice, students should wait until a course home page fully loads before trying to access a quiz. Navigating too quickly away from the home page could cause issues starting the quiz.

If you have any questions or need assistance with a quiz, please email LDT.

Updated Qualtrics UI

The Qualtrics user interface (UI) has changed. If you are current Qualtrics user, we recommend you familiarize yourself with the new interface. The changes will not impact any surveys you’ve created/distributed or reports you’ve built. The only impact is to the UI itself in regard to its look, feel, and function.

Don’t forget, we provide you with additional documentation on the LDT Supported Technologies page of our site.

If you are not currently using Qualtrics and would like to, email LDT for an account. We provide Qualtrics access for all faculty, staff, and students. We have a campus-wide license, which means all users can create unlimited surveys, collect unlimited data, and build unlimited reports.

How to Insert a Panopto Video into a Canvas Course

As we have moved from D2L, we will no longer have D2L Capture. Our new lecture capture system is called “Panopto.” If you had videos in Capture, they have been moved for you. If you plan on recording additional videos, you will need to use Panopto.

Below you will find instructions for inserting a Panopto video in a Canvas course.

1. Access the “Courses” dropdown from within Canvas, and access the course you would like to put the video into.
