About Kaltura Course Media Gallery

The course Media Gallery is a searchable gallery of media content for a specific course. In order to appear in the course Media Gallery, media must be specifically assigned to the gallery. By default, the instructor must approve all content published to the Media Gallery.


To upload media content into your course, use the Kaltura Media Mashup Tool. The Mashup tool allows you to add media content anywhere in your course where you see the text/content editor.


To view and manage all media you have created, see Kaltura My Media.
