  • Replace existing streaming infrastructure
  • Enhance Oncourse's multimedia capabilities
  • Create a user-generated video repository, including support for student content

Benefits: Managing and publishing user-generated audio/video content is currently a laborious task that needs to be streamlined. The Kaltura solution has the potential to improve the user process of uploading and presenting media for academic and administrative needs. Integration with existing systems should create an environment of video ubiquity within the university.
