Add Media as a Mashup

Audio or video files you have already created can be added anywhere you see the Content Editor (the formatting toolbar).  For example, media can be added to the instructions for Discussions or Assignments, to explain a process, or to an Announcements, to touch base.

Say you are using the Discussion board, have created a forum, and want to post a thread that includes a bit of video or audio.  Create Thread is one of many places in Learn that offers the Content Editor (the formatting toolbar). 

1. If you do not see the full tool set, click the chevrons on the far right to expand the menu.

2. Click Mashups > Kaltura Media.

3. This takes you to an area called My MediaMy Media stores all the materials you have uploaded/ created.   It also has an Add Media button in the upper right, for adding material or capturing more before you proceed.  

Once you have created your recording using Kaltura Capture or another tool of your choice, and uploaded it to My Media, you can browse and select it. You will be returned to the window for your post, with a placeholder for your video inserted.  Click Submit.  (Note: For students to install Kaltura Capture, you must make the My Media module available.)

The Discussion thread window will appear, with a placeholder for your new recording loaded.  Make additional changes. Click Submit.
