BeachBoard Media

The Media tool allows you to generate, upload, and organize video/audio files into a dedicated space associated with your BeachBoard profile referred to as your My Media Library. From each of your courses, you will be able to pull content from your My Media Library into that course’s dedicated Course Gallery. Students will be able to access the Course Gallery to view all of your uploaded content.

Downloading Existing Content

Before using Kaltura, you’ll want to make sure you have your video file stored on your computer as a .mp4 file. If you have your videos housed on Media Site, Panopto, or YouTube, please refer to respective walkthroughs below.

We no longer have access to Panopto. If you have a request for previously stored Panotpo content, please reach out to our BeachBoard Support team.
