Kaltura is delighted to announce the release of our new version of the Kaltura Video Building Block for Blackboard Learn 9.1. The purpose of Kaltura’s deeply integrated video Building Block is to enable students, faculty, teaching assistants and administrators to use and reuse media for course resources, video assignments, lectures, and more, while at the same time reducing the costs and complexity of video management. By simplifying media usage, Kaltura aims to enable improved student engagement, creativity, and learning results.
The new version introduces a new clipping functionality. This easy-to-use editing tool, allows users to create video clips out of existing content (recorded lectures, video resources, etc.) in order to remove redundant parts or to create highlights of the larger video. Clips and highlights created, as well as all other video content stored in the Kaltura media gallery modules within Blackboard, can be consumed from any device including mobile, tablet and desktops. Security enhancements introduce support for HTTPS secure delivery of videos, and the Building Block is now more tightly integrated with the Kaltura Management Console application.
