My Media

The My Media area is where any files that you personally add to Kaltura are stored. It is also where you manage/edit, publish, share or delete your media files.

My Media can be accessed from the top left ‘Tools’ area on the Blackboard Modules tab. It will also be accessed if you select ‘Kaltura Media’ under the ‘Build Content’ menu in any content area in your course.
