Media on Blackboard

 Kaltura

Instructors and students can use Kaltura to upload videos to Blackboard, create videos via webcam or screen capture, and share videos with teachers and students in particular courses. To get started using Kaltura, please read our new Kaltura User Guide. Please be aware that any video uploaded to Blackboard should accord with Vanderbilt’s Copyright Policy for Blackboard.

If you plan to have students use Kaltura to create or share media, here is a Kaltura – Student Guide you can email students or, better yet, post directly on your Blackboard course for students to access.

Library Resources on Blackboard

SIPX is a technology service that helps manage and streamline the copyright clearance process for faculty, staff and students. The system draws in all types of content and data, including library-licensed content in which the university library has already made significant investments, open-access materials, and comprehensive publisher content.
