Kaltura is a video streaming tool that allows students and faculty to create and share media content from anywhere and any device. Users can upload content in Moodle or Mediaspace. Content in Moodle is restricted to curricular use, while the Mediaspace portal permits sharing content outside of Trinity. Both environments share the same tools and access to the “My Media” personal library.

 

Zoom is a video conferencing tool with a local, desktop client, a web client, and a mobile app. When providing synchronous online instruction, Zoom could help you facilitate small-group discussions, hold regularly scheduled office hours, meet with a student to provide extra help, or conduct oral examinations.
