Migration of videos to the Kaltura cloud is complete

May 12, 2023 at 10:45 am

UBC has successfully moved all Kaltura videos hosted at UBC into the Kaltura cloud. Thank you for your patience as the LT Hub video team migrated nearly 180,000 Kaltura videos during the month of April.

The team has also been running scripts to automatically update Kaltura videos embedded normally in Canvas courses (e.g., videos displayed in a Canvas module or page), so that they point to the videos’ new location in the cloud. This updating process will continue during the next several weeks, as we continue to identify the different ways that Kaltura videos have been embedded in courses.

Now we need your help in the final part of the process.

Migration of videos to the Kaltura cloud is underway

April 3, 2023 at 9:45 am

UBC has begun moving Kaltura videos hosted at UBC into the Kaltura cloud, as part of Kaltura’s roadmap to improve the sustainability of the platform.

The migration will have minimal impact on courses this term. However, we strongly recommend not changing your Kaltura videos or metadata during the month of April, to avoid losing work. And if you want to save Kaltura video analytics or the previous answers that students gave to Kaltura video quizzes, you will need to download this data before April 30.

Changes coming to Kaltura starting on April 1, 2023

March 3, 2023 at 12:00 pm

Kaltura is UBC’s primary platform for capturing, managing, and sharing academic videos. Starting on Saturday, April 1, 2023, UBC will begin moving Kaltura videos hosted at UBC into the Kaltura cloud, to create a better video experience for you and your students.

During the current academic term, the migration will only affect when you can change your Kaltura videos. But after May 1, it will also change where your Kaltura videos are linked from and it will reset some data tied to Kaltura videos, including analytics, comments, and previous answers that students gave to quizzes.
