Moodle’s Kaltura Media Gallery
The Kaltura Media Gallery block enables users to view videos uploaded to Kaltura in a common media gallery in the Moodle course area. The gallery forms a playlist for the videos of the course area. More information about other ways of grouping videos: instruction.
Use the Media Gallery block when
- you want to build an internal playlist implementation of videos in the Moodle course area alone or together with other students or teachers
- you want to take advantage of analytics compiled from watched videos
- you want to use the same entity also with other implementations using the import function
Students and teachers can therefore download videos as usual to Kaltura and upload their own videos to other users of the course area to be viewed via the Media Gallery function.
The teacher can also use the media gallery as a playlist of his own videos. In this case, the videos uploaded to Kaltura can be, for example, in private mode, and the media gallery can be used to collect educational videos created around a certain topic. You can copy the media gallery directly from your own course area to another course area where you work as a teacher.
Based on watching the videos in the media gallery, easy-to-glance and take-over analytics are produced for the teachers of the course area. More information from Kaltura’s pages a>.
