Uploading video files directly to Blackboard is not recommended as file sizes and types may prove problematic for students. It’s easy to convert video to Kaltura, however, and to drop the Kaltura video into your course:

Step 1: Upload your file to Kaltura

  • Go to Kaltura and click LOGIN in the top right corner: https://vcu.mediaspace.kaltura.com/
  • Select My Media
  • Click ADD NEW at the top of the page
  • Select Media Upload
  • Click Choose a file to upload
  • Browse to locate the file on your computer. This might be a video you took with your phone or using a video camera, a Zoom recording, or a video that someone else shared with you.
  • A progress meter will display. Change the file name (optional) and click Save

Step 2: Add your Kaltura video to Blackboard

  • Go to the area of your course where you want students to access the video
  • Select Build Content > Kaltura Media. The videos in your Media Gallery will appear
  • Click the Select button associated with the video that you want to add to your course
  • Enter a title for your video
  • Click Submit
