Kaltura My Media provides faculty with the option to post YouTube videos which can then be embedded into Canvas items (Pages, Announcements, Discussion forums, etc.). You also have the ability to add/edit captions for the video and see analytics for the video including who viewed the video and for how long, etc.

Please view the Canvas How do I reorder and hide Course Navigation links? for help enabling My Media
Click the My Media link
Click the Add New drop-down button
Navigate to the YouTube clip you would like to use. Copy the URL
Only publicly available YouTube videos can be embedded into Kaltura. YouTube videos that are private would have to be embedded (using the iFrame code) into Canvas items (Pages, Assignments, Announcements, etc.).
In My Media, paste the YouTube URL into the box provided and select "Preview"
Note: Kaltura will cut off everything except the ending unique video identifier of the URL you pasted.
You will see that the name and description of the video that were used in YouTube have been placed here for your convenience. You can edit these accordingly. Click Save.
When embedding the video, the video descriptions and name of video are automatically populated in My Media. You only need to add search tags.
My Media Options
Please note that YouTube videos do not have the same options available as media files uploaded to Kaltura. For example, you will not have the features for clipping and trimming. Machine and Human Closed Captions can be requested for these YouTube videos in Kaltura My Media. You can also add SRT files to the YouTube video. The YouTube video can be published to the Media Gallery.
In-Video Quiz function is available to these embedded YouTube videos adding another level of interactivity to these videos. This allows faculty to add action points for student knowledge and retention without changing the original state of these videos.
Analytics is also captured as students engage with the YouTube videos. This provides faculty with data on student interaction and responses based on in-video quiz questions and checkpoints.
