Kaltura to Panopto Changeover

On June 1, 2021 Kaltura will no longer be available for use, but don’t worry – your video content will be moved for you. Since Kaltura and Panopto have developed to have very similar feature sets over the past few years, we will be consolidating all video streaming and lecture capabilities onto Panopto to streamline technologies, support, and budgets. 

Though we encourage faculty to switch as soon as possible to Panopto for video creation, Kaltura will remain available for new video creation until February 1, 2021 at which time no more video content can be created or uploaded into Kaltura, although videos can continue to be played throughout the Spring 2021 semester. The Office of eLearning team at UM-System will be copying all Kaltura videos that have been played at least once within the last two years over to the relevant campus instance of Panopto.  

Where can I learn how to use Panopto?

The UM-System Teaching Tools site contains a number of help documents on using Panopto or you can also register to join one of the many workshops or help sessions on Panopto.
