Kaltura My Media in Canvas

Course videos in Canvas are uploaded using the Kaltura Media tool, one of the advantages of this system is that all media you have uploaded is accessible across courses. My Media is where you can access, edit, and add new videos associated with your JHU Canvas account.

My Media Features

My Media is your Kaltura Media home, where you manage all of your video content, regardless of which class you have accessed it from. Here you will find Zoom recordings, lecture content and any other videos you have uploaded.

More information about how to use the features of My Media can be found in the following articles:

Navigating My Media

Depending on how many videos are associated with your account, you may need to use Kaltura's search and navigation tools to find the desired content. From My Media, you can use the Search Bar (1 in the screenshot below) to find videos by title, tags, or description. You can further narrow down the search results by using the available Filter (2) including Media Type, Publishing Status, Ownership, Duration, and Creation or Upload date.

Once you locate the video entry you wish to engage with, you can click on the video thumbnail or title to go to the entry and watch it. You may also use the icons to the right of the title to go directly to a few functions: The graph icon will take you to the analytics page for a video, the pencil icon will open the edit page, and the trash icon is used to delete videos.

Note: Be very careful when using the delete function, as there is no undo button, a video is gone after deletion. We recommend removing the video from the course area in which it has been posted rather than deleting the entry.
