Kaltura (video management system)
If you haven’t familiarized yourself with Kaltura, now is the time to do so. It is the university’s new video management system, available to everyone with an SU NetID. Think of it as a university-oriented YouTube, but with more control of your videos. It even has recording and basic editing features. You can create a screen-capture tutorial with the Kaltura Desktop Recorder app.
Log in with your SU NetID at video.syr.edu

PlayPosit (interactive video)
Ready to make video content MUCH more interesting? The university has a license for PlayPosit to allow you to create powerful interactions through multiple choice video navigation for instant feedback to a viewer. Enriching a flipped classroom, such choose-your-own-adventure videos really connect with students and increase retention of the content. PlayPosit links directly with your Kaltura account, making for great ease-of-use.
