Bulk Uploading Videos to Kaltura

If you have a large number of TechSmith Relay or DU VideoMananger videos that need to be moved over to Kaltura, follow these instructions:

  1. Identify the videos you still need.
  2. Tag your videos: In DU VideoManager, please make sure your video title, tags, and description are completed. Tags are especially important because tags are used to filter videos in Kaltura. Here are some examples of tags:
    1. Course Name and Course Number
    2. Topic(s)
  3. Contact Alex Martinez at alex.martinez@du edu to discuss the bulk transfer process.
