Division of Information Services Moves Forward With Kaltura Transition
Kent State University’s Division of Information Services has introduced Kaltura, a video platform set to replace KSUtube by the end of the year. Kaltura was chosen because of its seamless integration with Blackboard Learn and in-depth features that benefit both faculty and students.
Information Services’ staff is facilitating the transition from KSUtube to Kaltura by migrating faculty videos from one platform to the other. More than 30,000 videos have been migrated to Kaltura so far, with many faculty and staff providing positive feedback.
“I am very glad Kaltura has been officially added as an online video-making resource for Kent State University,” says Luis Hermosilla, Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Modern and Classical Language Studies. “Integration of Kaltura and Blackboard Learn is very smooth. I highly recommend this tool for both instructors and students.”
By Jan. 1, 2017, users will no longer be able to upload videos to KSUtube.
The Kent State University Board of Trustees today established a comprehensive, national search to recruit and select the university’s 13th president.
The events of May 4, 1970, placed Kent State University in an international spotlight after a student protest against the Vietnam War and the presence of the Ohio National Guard ended in tragedy with four students losing their lives and nine others being wounded. From a perspective of nearly 50 years, Kent State remembers the tragedy and leads a contemporary discussion and understanding of how the community, nation and world can benefit from understanding the profound impact of the event.
