Video Platform Kaltura (For faculty and staff members)
We have introduced "Kaltura", a video creation, management and publishing service that can be used from PandA. With "Kaltura", you can publish a video prepared in advance on the PandA site, or shoot a video using WebCam. In addition, you can create a quiz video in the selected format or a lecture video using PowerPoint, and perform simple editing (trimming).
Functions such as recording, uploading, editing, and publishing can be used by adding to users (faculty and staff members/ part-time teachers) PandA My Works Space. You can also use Kaltura Capture with advanced editing features from this site.
