Blackboard

Blackboard is the university's campus-wide web-based virtual learning environment and learning management system. Students and faculty can participate in classes delivered online or access online materials and activities to complement face-to-face classroom experiences and use streaming video and online conferencing tools provided within Blackboard.

Kaltura

Kaltura Capture can be used to record audio, screen capturing, webcam videos, and upload them or existing media from your device to My Media in Blackboard or on your MediaSpace at video.uark.edu. Kaltura has a cloud-based video management system that integrates with Blackboard. Once your media is uploaded, it can be used in multiple areas across University sites, including multiple Blackboard courses at once. This media can then be inserted into Blackboard assignments, quizzes and exams.

The advantage of using Kaltura is that your media is converted into multiple file formats which can be viewed in a browser without needing to install an additional browser plugin. Using Kaltura rather than YouTube or Vimeo provides secure and private video publishing because only students enrolled in a Blackboard course have access to videos uploaded to that course.
