Migration of Videos from Medial and Vidgrid to Kaltura

As of July 8th, 2020, the Division of IT (DoIT) has migrated all content from our former video platform, Medial, to our new platform, Kaltura. DoIT has also migrated all content from Vidgrid to Kaltura for those who participated in the Vidgrid pilot.  If you had content in Medial and/or Vidgrid, you should now see that content in your My Media section of Kaltura.

While the content has been migrated for you, if you have embedded or linked Medial or Vidgrid content in course materials in a Blackboard course or shell that you plan to reuse after Summer 2020, you will need to replace your Vidgrid links or embeds with Kaltura links or embeds.  See the video below for an example of this process. 

Access to the Medial video portal and to Vidgrid will no longer be available after the Summer semester, links and embeds that point to those servers will no longer work.  If you have questions about your migrated content, please contact CITL for assistance.
