Migration of Kaltura Content and Decommissioning of RU-Stream

Kaltura

Rutgers IT engaged Kaltura professional services to facilitate migration of content from each Kaltura instance associated with legacy LMSs. The first run migrated over 55,000 entries from the Kaltura instances associated with Moodle and Blackboard/Sakai. Subsequently, access to Kaltura associated with Moodle was removed since course migration to Rutgers Canvas was also complete. A second migration began after Spring 2021, which was the last semester for teaching on Blackboard.

With the last semester for teaching on Sakai ending this Fall 2021 semester, a third and final migration of Kaltura content is scheduled for January 2, 2022. In preparation for this migration, the ability to upload content to Kaltura in Sakai will be disabled on January 1, 2022. This will also affect the ability to upload content to RU-Stream which is the web portal for Kaltura integrated in Sakai and Blackboard. Users may access a different instance of Kaltura in Canvas or through Rutgers Mediaspace. Please reference these support articles:

For Rutgers faculty and staff who have shared links and embedded content from RU-Stream, RU-Stream will be to be available for view-only. Once all content is available on Rutgers MediaSpace, you should begin updating your shared links and embed codes on your websites. RU-Stream will be inaccessible after March 1, 2022.
