The use of rich-media in a connected world is ubiquitous and nowadays it is expected as a part of everyday experience in an educational environment. Institutions, as well as teachers and students, are increasingly interested in tools and applications to manage media assets and enhance courses with dynamic content.

This is why Blackboard and Kaltura, today announced an expansion of their partnership in Australia and New Zealand to help support the integration of Kaltura’s powerful video tools and capabilities in Blackboard’s teaching and learning environment in schools and universities across the region. With the expanded partnership, institutions will have additional administrative benefits, including a single supplier and contact, a streamlined procurement process, and unified technical support.

Blackboard will provide access and support for the Kaltura Online Video Platform featuring the Kaltura Management Console, a full-featured media management console, which allows further control of the system and allows use of rich media across other Kaltura applications, such as Kaltura MediaSpace, learning management systems (LMS) integrations and a soon to be released lecture capture product.

The companies first partnered in 2011 and they have provided institutions all over the world with a scalable and secure way to handle rich media needs and have helped students, instructors and administrators add videos to courses, submit video assignments, view lecture videos, and build a personal media library directly in the learning environment.

Expanding the integration support comes a natural next step. Together, we will better support our Blackboard Learn and Enterprise Moodle customers in ANZ region who are looking for improved video capabilities.
