New Kaltura Features for Fall 2015

The player for course reserves now lets you watch videos at .5 speed, 1.5 speed, or 2.0 speed. It also now works on mobile devices. You can also now see a tiny frame of the video as you move the cursor along the timeline (so you can more easily find the spot you're looking for).
In Google Sites video playlists, you’ll see two clips at a time at the bottom of the screen. To see more videos, hover your mouse in the bottom right corner. A bar with an arrow will appear. Click the gray bar, and the next available video(s) will now show at the bottom of the screen.

Eligible Videos

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
