• 5. Galleries/Categories - in UofU MediaSpace

Kaltura MediaSpace is a media destination site for the University of Utah that stores and publishes videos to the campus community. It is a standalone repository and exists outside of the University learning management system for online courses, CANVAS (although the standalone version and video in Canvas share the same recording tools and "My Media" personal collection of videos).

Usually, any media you record, create, or upload to MediaSpace is stored in your personal collection of media items called MY MEDIA rather than being published to PLAYLISTS and CHANNELS that MediaSpace can host.

 There are five areas in which media files can be stored and/or shared.

  1. My Media
  2. Playlists
  3. Channels
  4. Share a Media Item
  5. Media Galleries/Categories

Below, MEDIA GALLERIES/CATEGORIES are explained.

 

 

5. ABOUT "MEDIA GALLERIES/CATEGORIES" 

(not implemented in the UofU MediaSpace)

Media files in MediaSpace can be collected into what are called Galleries or Categories. This is a feature only available to MediaSpace administrators to configure and populate.

For the University of Utah's MediaSpace, we have decided to not implement Galleries or Categories and instead focus on your ability to add private My Media files to Channels and Playlists (which can be shared with other MediaSpace users within the University of Utah).
