Kaltura: Embed a Kaltura Video into a Moodle Activity or Resource

There may be broken links in this article, the GROK staff has been notified and is working to resolve the issue.

Instructors can embed a Kaltura video in any activity or resource using a special button in the text editor. Both instructors and students can embed a video in a Moodle Forum post. Essentially, a video can be added almost anywhere text would normally be used.

To Embed a Kaltura Video within an Activity or Resource:

1. Login to Moodle and open your desired course.

2. Locate the activity or resource you'd like to embed a Kaltura video on and click its respective Pencil icon / Edit button.
