About Kaltura MediaSpace

Kaltura MediaSpace is the University’s media platform. It is like an institutional YouTube/Vimeo system. It allows you to upload, store and share video and audio files. These files may be for assignments, for maintaining a video log or for storing important moments.

MediaSpace (also referred to as Kaltura) is fully integrated into Moodle. As a student, this is the normal way you will access it.

You can use MediaSpace as a student to create and share videos. Your lecturers use MediaSpace to create and share multimedia content on your Moodle modules.

  • You can upload a wide variety of video and audio files, up to 2GB in size. For worry-free uploading, we would advise you keep files below 300MB, which can be helped using the free program Handbrake.
  • Videos are private by default but you can make them available to others. When you submit a video for an assignment, your lecturer and course officer will always be able to view it.
  • You can do basic editing within MediaSpace, like trimming and cutting out sections.
  • You can make simple screencasts (recordings of your screen with narration or webcam video) using the free tool Kaltura Capture.
