eClass videos hosted in Kaltura

Do you have videos that you use in eClass that were previously stored in Kaltura? The Faculty of Education's Kaltura video streaming service expired in July, but an archive of our videos has been saved to Google Drive. Any Kaltura videos used in eClass will need to be transferred to one of the centrally supported video services and links will need to be updated. Please contact Tech in Ed in early August for help identifying, moving and re-linking your video content.
