Testimonial

I am very glad Kaltura has been officially added as an online video-making resource for Kent State University. Integration of Kaltura with Blackboard Learn is very smooth. The CaptureSpace feature is an excellent tool; the process to upload the video is very efficient. No more saving it into your computer and then spending an incredible amount of time for the video to upload. Kaltura takes only a few minutes because all is practically done online. I highly recommend this tool equally for instructors and students."
