Kaltura Media Assignment

The Kaltura Media Assignment activity allows students to submit a video directly to you for grading. The media can be either a pre-recorded, edited video (.mov, mp4) or an instantly-recorded video using Kaltura Express Capture or the Kaltura Capture App.

You can create a Kaltura Media Assignment much like any other Activity in Moodle.

Enter your course and turn Edit mode on.

Turn Editing On button is found in the top-right corner of a Moodle page you have permission to modify content for.

Scroll to the section where you want to add a Kaltura Media Assignment.

Click the +Add an activity or resource link.

Select Kaltura Media Assignment.

NOTE: If the activity doesn’t show up in under the Starred tab, type Kaltura in the Search box at the top.

Set up your Kaltura Media Assignment under the General section:

  • Set the Name. 
  • Enter a Description to provide clear expectations for your students.
  • Enable and set the Due date; this will show on the Timeline and Calendar.

Expand and complete the Grade, Common module settings, and Activity completion sections as needed.

NOTE: If you do not want this activity to be graded, select None from the Type drop-down menu in the Grade section. The activity will still appear in the gradebook so you can provide feedback.

Scroll to the bottom and click the Save and return to course button.

Once your students start to submit their videos, you may grade and provide feedback to those submissions and, if enabled, encourage re-submissions.

NOTE: If you do NOT want to associate a grade value with this activity, set Grade type to None in the Kaltura Media Assignment settings. The assigment will still appear in the gradebook to allow you to provide feedback.

Enter the Kaltura Media Assignment activity.

Click the Grade submissions button.

The first 10 participants in the course will appear (unless you need to reset the Group Filter).

Under Optional settings, select the Requires grading option from the Show drop-down menu.

Click on the Save preferences button.

Click the Grade or Update link under the Status column for the submission you would like to grade.

View the student’s submitted video in the Preview section.

Select the appropriate score from the drop-down menu in the Grades section.

Provide feedback via the text box in the Feedback section.

NOTE: Click the Expand all link in the top-right corner to open all sections at once.

Click the Save changes button at the bottom of the page to return to the remaining submissions and repeat this process for each video
