How to use a course video gallery
The Kaltura Moodle integration also includes a course media gallery. This gallery, accessible from the Navigation block, allows videos to be added and shared within the course. On top of providing a one stop for all course video, playlists can also be created to showcase the course video content. Note, this gallery is limited to this course instance only and is NOT copied when restoring or copying content to a new Moodle shell.
