Kaltura Next Steps

So, you've recorded videos and added them to your classes in Blackboard. What's the next step? Did you know that you can view analytics for your videos to see which of your students are watching and for how long? You can also add questions to your videos to make them more interactive, and even add these scores to the grade center in Blackboard. Learn how to collaborate with your colleagues by sharing videos editing and publishing rights. Bring your laptop to explore these new skills!
