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.).  Kaltura's Interactive Video Quiz (IVQ) tool can be used to to increase the power of your YouTube video by embedding questions directly into the video. The IVQ feature increases engagement, enables effective assessment measurement, and provides a new way to improve learning outcomes. IVQ provides an easy-to-use quiz creation wizard to create an unlimited number of true/false and multiple choice questions with 2-4 optional answers per question for your course video quiz assignment.

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 or embedded into Canvas Pages.
