Kaltura to Panopto Migration


In this article

Videos created or uploaded to Kaltura before March 23, 2020, are now successfully migrated to a newly created migration folder for each user. If you have any questions about your Kaltura My Media, Kaltura playlists, or Kaltura MediaSpace content, please contact itsupport@umd.edu for assistance.

If you have uploaded videos to Kaltura MediaSpace previously, these videos that were uploaded may not have migrated to Panopto. DIT is working with Panopto to migrate these videos during the final migration starting on July 1, 2020. If you have any questions, please contact itsupport@umd.edu.

Beginning June 30, 2020, Kaltura will no longer be available to be accessed by faculty, staff, and students in ELMS-Canvas or by MediaSpace. Panopto will become the single media management platform supported by DIT.

You will now need to copy or move these videos into their perspective ELMS-Canvas course folders in order for your students to view or for you to embed videos throughout the ELMS-Canvas course space.

To access your videos and move them to the appropriate ELMS-Canvas course Panopto Recordings folders please follow the steps outlined below.
