This method allows you to insert a link to a Kaltura video stored in your Media library into your LEO unit, which will open it on a new page. You should already have the media you want to use saved in your library.
In your LEO unit, turn editing on, then click the 'Add an activity or resource' link in the section where you wish to add the video link.
From the resource types, choose the 'Kaltura Video Resource' option and then click the 'Add' button.
Give your resource a name (which will become the link text) and a description, and change any of the common settings that you with to set.
Under the Video section, click the 'Add media' button. This will open a window that allows you to choose the video you wish to add. At the top of the window are some options that allow you to choose videos from multiple galleries, and search, filter or sort your media:
When you have found the video you want to link to, select it from the media list by either just clicking the 'Select' button for that video, or click the arrow beside it and choose the size of the video you wish to link to (note that if you do not select a size here it will default to medium):
Once you choose a size, the pop-up window will close and return you to LEO. Click the 'Save and return to unit' button to save your video link.
The link to the video will now appear in your unit as a text link, and it should open on a new page as an embedded object.
Students, like staff, are able to upload their own resources to their My Media library in Kaltura.
For an assessment task in your unit, you may wish to allow students to submit a video as a part or whole of their assignment. This can be achieved using the Assignment tool in LEO, and allowing "online text" as a submission option.
Note: the Kaltura Media Assignment activity should no longer be used, as there are several known issues with this plugin. This plugin will be removed in future LEO updates. The grading options available in the Assignment activity are also much more flexible and user-friendly than the options in the Kaltura Media Assignment activity.
Setting up an Assignment to accept Kaltura submissions
When students submit their video assignments using the Assignment activity, they do so by embedding their video in the text box provided. This is a simple process that involves them clicking the Kaltura Media button and choosing a file to add. For steps on how to do this, please read and provide a link to students to the guide on How to submit a video assignment in LEO.
