Kaltura MediaSpace

Kaltura MediaSpace™ (KMS)


Build your own private YouTube™ with Kaltura MediaSpace™ Video Portal, the market-leading rich media portal for every use-case.

With the MediaSpace Video Portal, users can securely create, upload, share, search, browse, and watch live and on demand videos, presentations, webcasts, and other rich media content, anytime, anywhere. MediaSpace provides a superb cross-device user experience, unmatched user engagement capabilities, and powerful control and governance tools.

MediaSpace encourages community, collaboration, learning, and social activities through the power of online video. In the past, single administrators or small teams within the organization would publish to a large audience. MediaSpace revolutionizes this process by enabling democratization of media creation and sharing with many contributors, moderators, and viewers in a multitude of channels.

This service is offered to the Rutgers community at no cost.

The My Media Tool inside Sakai are linked to your KMS account.

  1. The "My Media" tool can be found in "My Workspace". "My Media" allows users to upload, create, edit and share media. The tool is titled "My Media" because it only displays the content owned by the user logged in. Therefore, users do not see anyone else's content unless it has been shared with them. It is not necessary to add "My Media" to specific Sakai sites in order to utilize the tool since it is already in "My Workspace".
