Hi guys my name is Kalie Thompson and I’m your project manager. Out page is called Kaltura, so if you would like to go to the site we will be making a wiki chapter about here is it: http://corp.kaltura.com/.

All of you should have my email, because I emailed all of you to remind you to do your three research comments. Here are examples of research we need: history (founders, when it was founded, where its headquarters are), purpose, how it works, how it is related to other applications, how it’s used in education, where it’s used, and international aspects. I got all of these examples by going to an old wiki chapter someone made. To see it go to http://wiki.itap.purdue.edu then go to the last space link called Web 2.0 Tools - New Possibilities for Teaching and Learning, then under the INSITE headline click to see old home pages and there are all of them, I normally look at the group 30 project (cause we are group 30!) called bubbl.us.

So for my first research I looked up “What Kaltura is about” which is: “Kaltura allows publishers of all sizes to easily, quickly, and cost effectively enhance their web site with video and interactive rich-media functionalities, including video management, searching, uploading, importing, editing, annotating, remixing, sharing, and advertising. Unlike the alternative proprietary solutions, Kaltura’s platform is completely flexible, extendible and free! Web publishers, Value-Added-Resellers, and Integrators use our software development kit to customize a unique rich-media experience that fits their specific purposes, and seamlessly integrates with many popular content management systems. Moreover, Kaltura’s reference implementations and growing library of applications, extensions and plug-ins allow publishers to select off the shelf solutions for rapid self-serve deployments that can be fully enabled within minutes.”

    Hey guys I thought this would be pretty helpful since it directly relates to this class (the education aspect I mean): http://corp.kaltura.com/solutions/education_video
    This area of the Kaltura website directly relates to how it can affect education and gives some examples of how it could be used. Here is the introduction of the section, before it actually goes more in-depth about how it can affect education:

    "The growing popularity of online video & rich media is rapidly revolutionizing education, training, and learning.

    Kaltura's Open Source Online Video Platform enables institutions to add video and rich-media capabilities to web sites, Learning Management Systems, internal digital repositories, libraries and online social networks quickly and easily. It also simplifies asset management and preservation of digital files.

    Deploy a wide range of education video applications to serve all of your institution's video needs: (list of examples)"

    Hello!

    I just did a bit of looking around on the Kaltura website and found that the site has been in the press quite a bit this past year. The site claims that Kaltura is "the world's largest network of legally re-mixable rich-media content."

    Info:
    http://corp.kaltura.com/about/company

    I also read that the site has joined forces with the New York Public Library, now making 600,000 digital images available to Kaltura users. If not useful, this info is at least very interesting and shows how big the site is becoming and how fast it is growing.

      Hello there.

      One of the questions that I saw we needed to address was how this application related to other applications. On the Kaltura website, I found that that the application has many technology partners who are "Providers of platforms, products, and services that can be integrated with our platform and enhance our offering. For example, open CMS and blogging platforms, open-source tools, merchandizing offerings, and ad networks."

      Their partners include YouTube, Wikimedia, Home Movie Depot, Limelight, Tremor Media and more.

    I thought this was pertty interesting, it's about how MetaCafe and Kaltura partnered to edit different parts of Heroes Season 2.  This is one way that the Kaltura software can be used, not neccesarily in an educational sense, but some understanding of what Kaltura can do is important. 

    "Kaltura partnered with MetaCafe, and created a fully branded and customized microsite where Heroes fans could remix preloaded videos, photos and audio from the show's second season. Users created new "Heroes moments" or remixed existing moments, complete with transitions and soundtrack. With hundreds of new mashups created within the span a few days, the "Heroes" campaign managed to reel in the audience, keep them interested and help position Universal Studios as a company on the cutting-edge. To see more, visit: http://www.metacafe.com/heroes2 "

    The link at the end is actually to show what the results of what people did with the kaltura software.

    Here is a list of things that Kaltura is capable of doing in education:

    "Kaltura offers a range of video solutions for education institutions, including:

    Video for teaching and learning - institutions engage students with high quality video, inside and outside of the classroom. Kaltura provides pre-integrated solutions that work seamlessly with leading Learning Management Platforms (e.g. Blackboard, Moodle, and Sakai), as well as with lecture capture and presentation systems.

    Video for distance education - institutions enable remote online classes and courses, as well as new full blown online degrees for international students.

    Video for social activities - clubs, student groups, research centers, faculty websites, and individual students and faculty leverage Kaltura’s out-of-the-box video extensions (e.g. for WordPress, MediaWiki, Drupal, ELGG) to support and augment students' and professors' online social activities.

    Video for collaboration and interaction - institutions enable groups to interact with one another by way of importing and uploading user-generated clips, commenting and reviewing, and collaborating with other students and faculty in creating, remixing, and annotating content.

    Rich-media for libraries - institutions make their multimedia archive accessible by the community, which is empowered to search, view, share, index and annotate content, and even contribute new content to the archive.

    Video for marketing - institutions produce marketing campaigns that keep prospective students and alumni informed, engaged, and involved.

    Advanced rich-media editing tools - institutions and students utilize Kaltura's online editors to insert annotations and comments, remix video clips, and to synchronize a viewing experience for video clips coupled with slides of PowerPoint presentations.
    Video for events and conferences - institutions use Kaltura's tailored application to upload, organize, publish, share, and archive rich-media content from events and conferences.

    Video for alumni - institutions enhance the engagement levels of alumni through providing them audio-visual information and promotions for continuing education programs.

    Video for sports - institutions and students upload, display, share, and syndicate clips relating to the institution’s sports teams and events.

    Emergency preparedness & flu packages - institutions mitigate risk and improve their preparedness by enabling students and faculty to continue their education at a distance in cases of quarantine and sickness.

    Kaltura also provides with its platform optional ancillary services, including custom integration and development services, content streaming and hosting, transcoding, and analytics. Institutions that utilize Kaltura's platform and services enjoy a one-stop-shop for all of their rich-media needs."

    Thats probably the most important information from the article, but the whole thing is worth reading as it kind of lets you know how educators (on a college level at least) are already utilizing Kaltura.

    Not only is kaltura used for business but they are venturing out and partnering up with sony entertainment and music sensation group Chevelle. The information found on this site was interesting and i never knew something like this was possible.

    Epic Records, a leading record label owned and operated by Sony Music Entertainment, has partnered with Kaltura, (http://www.kaltura.com), developer of the first open source online video platform, to power the Chevelle Remix Site as part of the promotion of the new Chevelle album 'Sci-fi Crimes', featuring the hit single 'Jars'.  The newly launched site allows Chevelle fans to create their own 'Jars' music video using Kaltura's open source video platform including its online remix tool.  The site can be seen at http://www.chevelleinc.com/videoremix.

    Since it’s launch in 2007 Kaltura has won 10 or more awards/endorsements.

  14. hello!! :) I found an article related to Kaltura-

    with all of these capabilities and openness, people will face new challenges on the Web. One big challenge will be to make the Web more personal and make it possible to simulate live interaction. One of the most promising companies to address this is Kaltura, maker of the only open-source online video management platform, with a free community platform, now used on over 35,000 websites and soon to be integrated into Wikipedia for user co-creation of rich media content. (Disclaimer: Kaltura is one of my client companies.)

    http://www.readwriteweb.com/archives/open_source_social_media_community_collaboration_freedom.php

  15. We made a mini survey of Kaltura of university students in Korea. The purpose of this survey is to get data for basic awareness of Kaltura.

     

    This is our survey contents:

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hello, Everyone.

    We are Education Technology students in Ewha Womans University.

    We are going to do survey about Kaltura , open source video application.

    1.     Have you ever heard the name of Kaltura?

    2.     Do you know What Kaltura is about?

    2-1  If you know Kaltura, have you ever used it?

    Thank you for your answer.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     

    The result indicated most students didn’t know what Kaltura is about and haven’t ever heard the name of Kaltura before. all of students replied “ I don’t know kaltura.” Only 8% have heard before the name of Kaltura but they know kaltura superficially.

     

    Reviewing above, we found that awareness of Kaltura is poor and information is not enough in Korea.


     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     

  16. As you can find out in the mini survey that we did, the majority of Korean students weren't aware of the web 2.0 tool, Kaltura!! A small number of people have answered yes, but the recognition was only superficial.
    Therefore, we thought about the reasons why Kaltura isn't widely used in Korea. In our opinion, two main factors have caused this situation.

    1) Different types of operating systems(OS)
      Though, internet has made it convenient to communicate around the world, various countries use different OS. This causes a lot of disorder because some internet sites are organized only to work in particular OSs. In Korea, an overwhelming majority uses Windows OS. Thus, many Koreans are very used to utilizing Windows interface sites. They aren't accustomed to other OS based sites, so they'll likely avoid using foreign internet sites!!

    2) Foreign language difficulty
      Probably, the most serious factor may be the language difference. Many people aren't comfortable using foriegn language. International sites are mostly based on English, thus, this can explain the low recognition and usage amongst Koreans.

  17. Nowadays we, Korean, use UCC very actively! We use tools like Nate video tools or Camtasia and so on. So, if Kaltura is introduced to Korea, it may be very useful to all Korean. Kaltura will be used as a one of the tools making video.

    It provides us benefits. When people make video about something, they can use this Kaltura tools and upload to any websites. So the other people also can see that video and get information and many interesting things. For example, if we want see the figure skating shows especially Kim yuna’s, we can edit the video file in that program and upload to their blogs.

    Of course, users are not expert but ordinary people. So when Kaltura will be introduced, the possibility of using Kaltura in ordinary people will increase and Kaltura will be one of the best media source and also Kaltura’s recognition level goes up!

  18. How Apply Kaltura to Korea education?

    In case of Korea, few of Constructivism is applied. Also in many case, there are used standardized education method yet.
    So If Kaltura will apply to korea education, it can help realization of Constructive education.
    First of all, Kaltura will help Children to participate actively at studying, not passivity participation that makes children just receiving knowledge. For example, Children can doing team project that handling Video, and through this, they can use video for learning, and some of them feel fun at video making.
    Second, Kaltura can help children’s cooperation learning in that it furnish sharing service that make possible coordination at making video. Children can cordinate when they using Kaltura for their learning and that will be good help for constructive teaching and learning.

  19. Adding lesson plan idea on each subject.

    Subjects

    Lesson Plan using Kaltura

    Physical education

    Kaltura will be excellent help to physical education. First of all, student who didn't understand teacher's explanation in class, can use Kaltura for understanding when he go back to home. Second, student can corporate each other through Kaltura, for instance, they hold physical excersise's method in common.

    Science education

    Kaltura also will help on science education very well. for example, after class teacher can upload experiment or that's method that is dealed at the day's class so student can review the class. It will be great help especially on Science class because sometimes science study is too difficult to student by them self. And teacher can give experiment homework to their student more easily through Kaltura.

    Sociology

    Students introduce their position such as school, major, community using Kaltura. Students make video for introducing their position and uploading it their blog or homepage through Kaltura. It offers opportunity to introduce student's backgrounds on the web.

    Math

    Many students have troubles in solving math problems. In this case, teachers can upload video through Kaltura about question which related to class homework. May be this will be helpful to student understand in how to solve Math question. Because teachers use Kaltura, students review that video many times or choose time what they want to see.

    Music

    Many students can learn effectively by utilizing music. Singing along the songs or making lyrics can help students participate in learning. Through Kaltura students are able to directly watch and hear the music. For example, if the class is studying about an orchestra, how it is organized and performed in front of the audience. By watching at the video edited in Kaltura, they can easily understand the structure of the orchestra.

    PBL(Problem based learning)

    Teacher gives problem having many solutions to students. Each team solves problem themselves and makes video using Kaltura, then upload their solutions video on blog. After that, all teams sharing that and talk about their result.
