Got Videos? Media Sharing Now Available on the CLE!

Sharing video imageFor some time now, UCSF has been in need of a place to store and manage video files to be shared across the University and for the public. Although Vimeo has been a resource on campus, the uploading process has traditionally not been available to all UCSF users, such as students. The time is finally here! The UCSF Library is now pleased to present a fully-functional system available to all staff, students, and faculty, called Media@UCSF.

Media@UCSF is an online video-hosting platform powered by Kaltura and provides the UCSF community with a centralized system for managing and distributing digital video content. Media@UCSF is fully integrated into the CLE, providing instructors and students with the tools to create, edit, and share videos in a course.

Anyone at UCSF can start using Media@UCSF now by logging into This blog post, however, will focus on the CLE integration.
