Adding Kaltura Media to your course
Kaltura My Media is your personal storage repository. You can add, organise, and remove video, audio, and image files while preparing the content for students. When you're ready, you can then add the content to the course so all students and other course members have access.
Find out how to add your Kaltura Media to your course by either of the three methods below:
Please note that videos in your My Media area belong only to you unless you choose to add a Collaborator. If you wish for colleagues to also also use your videos, be sure to add them as a collaborator on the resource.
You can also videos to your module in a content area by choosing: Build Content > Mashups > Kaltura Media.
In a content area, learning module, lesson plan, or folder, select Build Content to access the menu.
Select the Kaltura Media menu option to add link to it.
You can also add Kaltura content directly to the editor in your course's assignments, tests, and documents.
- In the editor, select Mashups
- Select Kaltura Media
- Choose your file and add it.
Kaltura Media Gallery is your course's shared media repository. You can use the Media Gallery to host multiple videos for students to view each others work. You can also add videos from the Media Gallery directly to the Course Content page so students don't have to search for relevant content. This feature is not turned on by default.
To use the gallery you will need to:
- Add a menu link to make the Tool visible
- Add media to the Gallery
Once media is published to the Gallery, all course members will be able to view it.
How to add a video to a course media gallery
When you click on ‘Publish’ you will be brought to a page with all of your courses to choose from. When you choose to publish a video to one of your modules, it will then go to the Media Gallery.
It will remain only visible to instructors unless you make the Media Gallery available to students.
Within your Blackboard course, go to the menu, and add a tool link.
Add a Tool Link > Type: Media Gallery to your menu in order to make it available.

The below video will give you more information on how to add and publish media to be accessible in this way.
While Blackboard's course copy functionality is useful for replicating course structures, there are certain items that should never be copied. It is advised that you NEVER copy your videos to your new modules using Blackboard's course copy functionality.
To ensure that your videos are working, please publish them to each new module, as per the options above.
