by Vitaly.Shter

Kaltura is delighted to announce the release of the new Kaltura Video for Package for Moodle 2.x!

Would you like to enable students in your institution to watch video clips, view video presentations/lectures synchronized with slides, and submit video assignments? You can now do this in Moodle without requiring students or faculty to download files or link to other websites. Unleash the potential of rich media in courses to improve student engagement, creativity, and learning results, and at the same time reduce the costs and complexity of video management, all integrated into your Moodle environment.

Our new release supports the latest Moodle LMS versions available (2.0 and up), and introduces revamped video-centric workflows for teachers and administrators:

1) Easily add video/audio content to courses (recorded class discussions, presentations, and any copyright media)
2) Create synchronized playback of a video presentation and any document (PowerPoint, Word, PDF, etc.)
3) Allow students to submit video responses to assignments, with a workflow to support teacher grading and feedback

The Kaltura video package now also supports video playback over mobile devices, allowing students and faculty to enjoy the video features on the-go. This package for Moodle 2.x, along with Kaltura’s revamped video block for Moodle 1.9, is part of Kaltura’s ongoing commitment to our customers and community using the Moodle LMS.
