Kaltura Service Updates for Fall 2019
November 15, 2019 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PMFree
This webinar will showcase the new features and improvements available to users of Kaltura services. This webinar will focus on the updates you’ll see starting in Kaltura on Thursday, November 21.
New Provider of Machine Captioning Services
Although you still order “machine” captions, under the Actions button, you’ll the ording process looks just a bit different. There is still no cost to order these machine captions, but rather than using cielo24, Kaltura now uses captions generated via automated speech recognition (ASR) provided by a company called verbit. You should find these captions are a bit more accurate than what was previously provided, but as a reminder no machine generated captioned will be compliant with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) without editing to be at least 99% accurate. No worries, any captions that you requested with the previous service will still be associated with your video.
Finally, when you have a caption associated with your video, an interactive transcript widget will be available to guide viewers through your captions.
Inserting Videos to D2L Brightspace Is Now Updated
Wherever you find the HTML editor of D2L Brightspace, you’ll see an updated way to insert your Kaltura videos. This new option gives you the option to select a video player size that matches your needs. Also new to D2L Brightspace is the ability for faculty using Kaltura’s Video Quiz tool to send student scores to the gradebook. Be sure to read the fine print from Kaltura.
Turn on Accessibility Mode
The Kaltura video player already supports screen readers and can already be navigated through keyboard shortcuts. Although the default text in MediaSpace meets WCAG-specificed contract rations, you can now turn on Kaltura’s Accessibility Mode to make the contrasts in MediaSpace really pop.
You can now use Kaltura’s Hotspots to add a button at a specific time in your video where your viewers are invited to open a link to a website you specify.
New Questions Type for Kaltura Video Quiz
We’ve enabled a new Video Quiz option for “open question types.” Additionally, faculty members will now have the option to turn on retake capabilities.
