About Kaltura at IU


Kaltura SaaS Edition is a cloud-based video management system that can be used for storing, publishing, and streaming videos, video collections, and other types of media. The system works with Canvas and accounts are available to Indiana University students, faculty, and staff.

Access Kaltura

There are several ways to access Kaltura. Follow the instructions below that correspond to your situation.

Via Canvas

In Canvas, to access Kaltura, use one of the following methods:

  • Personal media storage: In the Canvas global navigation menu, choose Kaltura: My Media.

    If prompted to authorize Canvas to access your Kaltura account, choose Authorize.

  • Media in your Canvas course: Choose Kaltura: Media Gallery in the Canvas course navigation menu.

    If the Media Gallery is not available in the course navigation menu, an instructor will need to add it; for help, see How do I manage Course Navigation links?

  • In the Canvas Rich Content Editor: Select the Apps icon (New Apps icon), and search for Kaltura Media.

For detailed information on how to use Kaltura in Canvas, see Kaltura Video Application for Canvas.

  2. At the top right, choose Guest and select Login from the drop-down menu. If prompted, log in with your IU username and passphrase.
