We will be upgrading from Kaltura to Kaltura Cloud in April 2022.

What is Kaltura?

Kaltura is the video management system used by Langara College. You may know it as My Media or MediaSpace. Kaltura is used for storing, publishing, streaming, and sharing videos, video collections, and other types of media.

Why are we upgrading?

Our video files are currently stored on servers at UBC as part of a province-wide shared service. Unfortunately, this arrangement is ending and we must move our videos to new storage and adopt a new streaming service. To keep things as simple as possible and maintain a consistent experience, we've decided to move to Kaltura's Canadian cloud storage and media streaming platform, Kaltura Cloud.

The benefits of this upgrade include:

  • Improved speed.
  • Additional features.
  • Improved login process.
  • Direct communication with Kaltura.
  • Improved and faster support directly from Kaltura.

Migration Process

The migration is now complete.


As part of the migration process, video links and embeds were updated in BrightSpace. Links and embeds on iWeb and CourseWeb sites and the Learning Object Repository (LOR) will need to be manually updated. If you need assistance updating your content, contact EdTech.


It is still important to make sure you maintain an offline backup of your media. Click here for more information on how to download any media items you don't already have stored offline.
