Kaltura: NIC MediaSpace

TIP: Access Kaltura’s Learning Help Centre for very helpful step-by-step instructions or Kaltura Learning Videos for a collection of videosΒ  – both will present current versions of support in how to use the platform

MediaSpace is a social video public-facing portal like YouTube. With NIC’s MediaSpace, any NIC student or employeee can securely create, upload, share, search, browse, and watch live and on demand videos, presentations, screencasts, and other rich media content, anytime, anywhere. However, because NIC has Kaltura integrated into Brightspace this doorway rarely is used by students and instructors.

NIC’s MediaSpace is located at and is the ‘front-door’ into your account. We have also installed a Brightspace ‘connector’ though another doorway into your media for use in Brightspace courses. This page outlines how to use and work within NIC MediaSpace. You would want to use the MediaSpace platform if you are sharing video with people beyond Brightspace such as any department or unit at North Island College or if you are an instructor or student and want to share a video with someone beyond your classes or with family or friends. The MediaSpace doorway to your same video collection has a few new features like the offering of a URL to share your video as well as embed code that can be shared on a website like WordPress.

The following handouts have been customed for NIC users:

  • NIC MediaSpace: How to Upload a Pre-Created Video to My Media: NIC PDF Version
  • NIC MediaSpace – Kaltura Capture Install and then How to Create Video and Upload: NIC PDF Version (this is a detailed step-by-step handout showing you from beginning to end how to use Kaltura Capture Desktop Recorder to record a video, upload it, add in the publishing details, and then get the URL for sharing)
