Kaltura (and Canvas) 

Kaltura is a service that provides tools for hosting and delivering media. This includes lecture capture, uploading video files (Zoom recordings, PowerPoint narratives, etc.,.), sharing videos and lectures with colleagues, and collecting video from students.?It is integrated with Canvas/myCourses and other UNH tools. Since it is a UNH secure location and integrated with myCourses, it is the preferred video hosting environment.
