Kaltura Releases Open Source Video Extension for Moodle

Kaltura, an open source video hosting and management site, now has a Moodle extension. Using the Kaltura video extension for Moodle, teachers can upload and manage rich-media content, such as full lectures in an online course; students can then post video comments, ask questions and create a face-to-face discussion recorded directly from their webcam or other sources. The extension also includes Kaltura’s Video-PowerPoint Widget, which presents a video and a slideshow in full synchronization. Presenters can upload their videos and slides and then select the keypoints to synchronize their presentations, and students can then view the presentation, scroll through the slides and be presented with the relevant video footage for each slide.
