This summer we added a program called Kaltura to the Haverford Moodle world. Using Kaltura, a professor can upload a digital video to their Moodle page, much the same way they might add a PDF, photo, or other resource.
But it only gets better: Kaltura enables teachers to create “video assignments” for their students–assignments that, once completed, may be submitted via Moodle with relative ease.
Kaltura doesn’t look like much– in fact, that’s part of what’s so effective about it. It simply resolves a shortcoming of Moodle, and using video generally: that it’s frequently a large file and sometimes cumbersome to use because of that. With a subtle, integrated tool like Kaltura, posting and submitting video content can feel as routine as posting papers, course readings, and photographs.
