Zoom Updates 

Many new features and functions are available in Zoom, such as the ability to rename breakout rooms, have a two-way chat with waiting room participants, and much more. To learn more visit https://td.unh.edu/TDClient/62/ksc/KB/ArticleDet?ID=2297&SIDs=4175

Synchronous Online Remote in Residence (SOLiR) teaching with Zoom 

With the start of the semester next week, remember that integrating Zoom with Canvas is advantageous to provide options for instructors. Canvas is a centralized platform for you to communicate with students. Learn more how to communicate with students in Canvas by using this guide.

Kaltura Capture Desktop Recorder – Branding Update
Kaltura updated their Capture Desktop Recorder application icon (see below). This branding change will have no effect on the recording functionality of the tool.

Zoom recordings moved to Kaltura Mediaspace   

Zoom Cloud Recordings: All Zoom cloud recordings are now automatically transferred and stored in Kaltura Media. All previous meeting recordings were also migrated to Kaltura Media. These recordings can be accessed via My Media in Canvas or Kaltura’s streaming platform for KSC - Mediaspace. Going forward cloud recordings will only remain in Zoom for 20 days and those links should not be directly shared with users; you should provide users with the Kaltura link, which will never expire.  

Kaltura Mediaspace ImprovementsKaltura Mediaspace is now the primary streaming video and storage system for most of the KSC campus community. Think of Mediaspace as your own campus YouTube. You can use it to publish lectures, store audio and video files, share media and much more. Click here for an overview.   

Faculty and students can continue to use My Media for class related presentations and activities or choose to publicly share media using KSC’s Mediaspace.    

Please follow these instructions to embed Kaltura videos into your Canvas course or these instructions to publish and share a Mediaspace recording. If you are currently sharing Zoom cloud recordings, please transition to Mediaspace or My Media in Canvas to share your video recordings. The transition from your Zoom cloud recordings to your Mediaspace or My Media in Canvas happens automatically. However, if you need assistance, The KSC Digital Learning Team can help.

Updated Term Filter

EAB removed the Global Term Filter from Navigate and the localization of features throughout the platform that used the Global Term Filter.

EAB added three filters to the My Assigned Students table on the Staff Home page: List Type, Term, and Relationship Type. You can use these filters singularly or together to easily locate certain populations of students.
