New Kaltura Features for Fall 2015
Only videos that are owned by the Wellesley College Libraries can be digitized. If you need a video for course reserves that the library does not own, please use the Suggest a Purchase form and indicate that the item is for Reserves and should be digitized.
Submitting a Video for e-Reserves
Use the library's Video E-Reserves Request Form. Please indicate the date each film should be available for use by your students. Requests submitted without dates will be processed whenever possible in the order in which they are received. If a video you wish to use is not yet part of the Library's collection, please use the Suggest a Purchase form and indicate that the item is needed for Reserves and should be digitized.
Accessing Videos on e-Reserve
In Spring 2012, we moved to Kaltura, a new video e-reserves system. This system appears as the Media Gallery tool in your course sites. In Sakai videos are available in the Site Library , and faculty can also organize content into Collections. In Google Sites the Media Gallery page contains a link to the playlist for the course. You can find more information on adding videos to a site and using the Media Gallery on our Sakai Media Gallery and Google Video E-Reserves pages.
Reusing Video e-Reserves
We will need to re-digitize films used in past semesters via the old system. Please submit the list of films you would like to use via the Video E-Reserves Request Form and include call numbers and dates for each film. If you need assistance in identifying films used in previous semesters, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
