''Awesome platform for learning purpose''

I'm using this platform for a long time. It's my favorite tool for all types of learning. This makes my work fast and easy.

PROS

Best and most powerful platform for all educators who want to make online courses for their students. This platform gives freedom to make PowerPoint presentations and webcam with both screens great advantage of this. Very professional and no type of glitch.

CONS

I never notice any problem while using it. I really like it so much and recommended it too. This makes video upload and embeeding fast.

Vendor Response

Thank you so much for the glowing review, Gurvinder! It's always a treat to read positive feedback from long-term customers. It's the ultimate reward for our hard work. Thanks again!

Kaltura - Great Experience for the End User - Horrible Experience for a Systems Admin

Kaltura is a valuable tool that integrates wonderfully with Canvas LMS. We have it set up for Teachers and Students to upload and publish videos. Kaltura has also launched In-Video Quizzing, so students watch a portion of a video, and then are prompted to answer a quiz question before they're able to continue watching. This interaction is awesome. Kaltura's customer service, however, is horrendous! Out of all of the technologies I manage for Utah Valley University, Kaltura is by far the worst at responding to emails and fulfilling customer requests. For example, I sent an email to their customer support account and cc'd our customer success manager and technical rep over a month ago, using the instructions provided on their site, and have yet to receive any response. Also, the Kaltura Management Console (KMC) is all Flash based. It's 2016. Seriously. Update the KMC.

PROS

Great product for end users, especially the integration with Canvas LMS.

CONS

Customer Support is the absolute worst. And the KMC is Flash based.

Overall good platform

PROS

The videos were useful and easy to navigate. You could watch in 2x speed or slow it down which was nice and you could put videos into albums or chapters based on topics and watch everything on that topic.

CONS

The problem I ran into the most was having trouble loading the videos. Not sure if this is actually and issue with kaltura or just network issues but I had consistent problems across different networks.

Vendor Response

Dear Abby, Thank you so much for the positive review. It's always a treat to read how our customers are enjoying our solutions. Regarding the slow loading times, it's true that it could be due to connection speed, network load, or the size of the video file. Optimal loading time is a factor our developers always keep in mind as they work to improve and update our solutions. However, if the issue persists, I would love for you to notify Customer Support and see if they can help you solve your upload speed. Thanks again, Abby!

Managing video recording of classes

A solid tool to manage video recordings and provide them to our students.

PROS

The ease with which very long videos were loaded and managed made it seamless to offer an interactive access to video recordings of the classes to my students. We used Kaltura integrated with the Moodle platform.

CONS

Sometimes loading speed was average, with occasional (one in twenty times) needs to restart video uploading.

Full-featured and well integrated at my school

Kaltura has been very easy to work with as a faculty member and gives students a good viewing experience.

PROS

Kaltura had integrated with the rest of the university's technology in such a way that it is extremely easy for me to use and highly useful for me and my students. Every one of my classes is automatically recorded and stored in Canvas so my students have access to every recording without even knowing that they are using Kaltura. I have experimented with the desktop screen recording solutions for my virtual classes and it works pretty well. It doesn't have all the features of a dedicated screen recording app, but it does record the screen and camera separately and lets the students choose which to watch after the fact, which is pretty cool.

CONS

On the desktop screen recording tool for Mac, I can select a portion of the screen, but I can't have it record just one window, which I would really like to be able to do.

Vendor Response

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. It's always a pleasure to read about our customers enjoying our products. Improving the teaching/learning experience in a convenient way is our top priority and your feedback reaffirms the hard work we put in every day. We took note of your suggestion about window selection and sent it to the team for review. Thanks for that.
