Kaltura MediaSpace Updates

DMP, EdTechBrandi Bleak

The recent transition to PeopleSoft brought many changes with it, including differences in how users upload and embed videos from MediaSpace into Blackboard. Currently, this process has been disabled within Blackboard while IT works out some authentication issues. While the IT department is working with a third-party vendor to ensure resolution, there is an available workaround. 

Currently, Kaltura MediaSpace still requires users to login by using the old credentials that were used prior to the PeopleSoft transition. In order to access content that was already uploaded into MediaSpace, users are advised to login to Artemis and access MediaSpace via a link in the Technology tab until a similar bridge has been created within myFSCJ. Once a user has logged in to MediaSpace, they can upload, edit, and copy an embed code to use within their Blackboard course to make the content available to students. 

Once a permanent fix has been tested and is in place, an update will be posted and communicated. If users have any questions about the workaround, please submit a ticket at help.fscj.edu.
