Add Collaborators to Kaltura Media


Kaltura allows you to add specific other UCSD community members as "collaborators" for any piece of media. You can allow them to publish, edit, or just view your media, but in any of those cases they'll see it in their "My Media."

These instructions apply to all UCSD Kaltura community members with active directory credentials.

Collaborators can be added in Canvas or in MediaSpace. 

Critical Concepts

Co-ViewerCan see your video in their "My Media" but can only view it.
Co-PublisherCan see your video in their "My Media" and publish it to other courses (Canvas) or channels (MediaSpace) of which they're a member. Not able to edit the entry.
Co-EditorCan edit all the details of your video - title, description, captions, etc - and download it. Not able to publish it.
