This week, Learning Systems added the following new features to Kaltura:

Variable Playback Speed

The inability to control video playback speed was brought to the attention of SON IT by a student. He and a number of his peers were frustrated that this feature, which is available in Echo, was missing from Kaltura. Learning Systems enabled the playback rate selector as shown in this screenshot. It is now a part of the Kaltura player and available by default.  Many thanks to Jack for coming forward with this request from his fellow students!
