Edit Closed Captions with Kaltura

Kaltura is no longer using the Ceilo captioning editor they did in the past. They are now using a new interface and this page will be continually updated as those changes roll out.

When using Kaltura in either MediaSpace or Moodle, videos are automatically scanned and transcribed by computer to provide closed captioning options. However, the system is not fool-proof and some editing may be required.

Additionally, it does take some time for Kaltura to process the captioning, so do not expect it to be available immediately. When captions are available, you should see a "caption complete" tag, as well as other tags from common words used during the video.

Follow these steps to edit the closed captioning of uploaded videos.

1.) Log into either Moodle (main campus faculty) or MediaSpace (Law School) and navigate to 'My Media'

  • Moodle: On the right-hand side under 'Navigation' click Dashboard -> My Media
  • MediaSpace: In the upper right-hand corner, click your name -> My Media

2.) Click on the Named Video Link (not edit!)

An image with video names labeled "Examples" and arrows pointing to them.

3.) Click the Actions drop-down menu and select 'Caption Requests'

  • In Moodle, you may have to scroll down the page to locate the button. Options may differ based on if you are in MediaSpace or Moodle.

4.) The Caption Request table is displayed wih all existing caption requests. If a caption has been completed, click the "Edit" icon (small pencil)

  • If no listed Caption requests with an Edit button are visible, click 'Refresh list: CLICK HERE to see all Caption Requests for this media' to refresh the list.

5.) Click on the edit icon to open the editor. Then the editor will be displayed

6.) When you are done making changes, make sure you have clicked the SAVE button. Return to MediaSpace or Moodle and the corrections should now appear.
