Do you have dynamic media files you would like to share with your students through Sakai, but not take up valuable course site space? Consider adding the Loyola Media tool to your course!
Loyola Media is a cloud based web service developed by Kaltura which facilitates the conversion and distribution of various audio and video media formats. Faculty, staff and students may upload media content to the Loyola Media server which automatically converts and optimizes your media for hassle-free distribution on the web.
To begin, simply add the tool to your course site by going through Site Info and then Edit Tools. More information can be found about adding tools to your course site here.
Faculty can start uploading audio, video, or photos through the tool once added. Students can also upload media files for review by instructor, or even share with the whole class. All media uploaded through the Sakai integration is automatically private and only available to those enrolled in the course. If you’d like to share media outside of Sakai, you can upload files directly to the Loyola Media interface at https://media.luc.edu/.
Documentation for using Loyola Media in Sakai can be found on our website at http://luc.edu/itrs/teachingwithtechnology/loyolamedia/. More information about Loyola Media, including acceptable file types and size limits can be found under the FAQ’s at https://media.luc.edu/faqs.
