With the addition of the Canvas App, Kaltura uniquely provides fully integrated video extensions for all major Learning Management Systems,” said Ron Yekutiel, Kaltura Chairman & CEO. “We are seeing huge adoption of our LMS and CampusTube video solutions as video increasingly plays a key role in today’s educational trends – be it Flipped Classrooms, MOOCs, SPOCs or Social Learning.”

Yekutiel added: “Educational institutions need to provide to today’s ‘YouTube generation’ the enriched video experience that they have come to expect and demand. Our education video solutions, including this new Canvas Video App, allow universities, K-12 schools and ed-tech companies to do just that.”
Kaltura’s Canvas Video App is built based on the modular and flexible Kaltura Application Framework, which allows for the easy and rapid insertion of robust video workflows into existing products such as Canvas. By way of this integration, educational institutions and their users can continuously benefit from the ongoing innovation at Kaltura, which is also supported by a community of more than 80,000 developers. The Kaltura Application Framework is hosted on the Kaltura cloud, which means new features and developments are automatically available without the need to upgrade the integration. Using applications based on the Kaltura Application Framework, institutions can centrally manage all media content and associated metadata and avoid overhead and silos.
