Kaltura is an open-source media platform that allows users to upload, host, and edit their own videos (though other media may also be hosted). The University of Virginia provides two options for using Kaltura: the Kaltura Media Gallery, which allows the university community to use Kaltura in UVaCollab sites or the Mandala Suite of Tools , which allows users to integrate Kaltura videos with other SHANTI tools.
