PlayPosit – Pairing Your Kaltura Account

Rutgers MediaSpace, powered by Kaltura, is integrated into PlayPosit.  Users can create learning experiences around previously recorded videos from MediaSpace.

For some users, the integration of Kaltura and PlayPosit is not seamless.  When you are creating a bulb and choose to add a Kaltura video to your bulb, you may not see your Kaltura videos. You must pair your Kaltura account to PlayPosit.
