Kaltura: Accessibility Information

Accessibility & Kaltura

In this course, you may be asked to upload videos and your peers may be asked to review them. Our goal is to make those materials accessible to everyone regardless of disability. You may be asked to provide a transcript of your video for the use of your peers in the event that they cannot watch or hear the videos due to a disability.

Alternately, it is the responsibility of students with disabilities to request appropriate accommodations from the Office of Disability Services at your University within the first week of the course start date. You can contact Disability Services via e-mail at
