The Echo360 video platform is now available in Brightspace for your Fall 2021 classes. Kaltura will be unavailable after September 30th.

As of the Fall 2021 academic term, Echo360 has been adopted as UVic’s centrally supported video platform for learning and teaching, replacing Kaltura.

As we fully transition to the new platform, access to Kaltura will no longer be available after September 30, 2021. This includes access to the Kaltura Media Gallery and Kaltura videos embedded in Brightspace.

Please note: The Kaltura Course Media Gallery will be disabled on Monday, September 20th, 2021.

Content for instructors and staff created prior to August 11th has already been automatically migrated from Kaltura to Echo360. Additional information about the migration process and information on where to find migrated videos is available on the Kaltura to Echo360 Video Migration page on Teach Anywhere. LTSI is available to provide instructors with support for this transition.

More information about the Echo360 platform and its use for in-person class recording, creation of media, video assessment and student engagement is also available on Teach Anywhere.

What can Echo360 be used for?

Echo360 provides a wide array of tools for video in and outside of the classroom:

Record In-Person Classes

Create and share recordings of in-person classes using the classroom resident computer or your own device.

Create and Edit Videos

Create new videos, share existing videos, and make small edits right within Brightspace.


Video assessment

Ask students to record and submit video assignments, and provide time-stamped feedback.

Engage students

Add polls to lectures and online videos. Enable students to take notes, flag content as confusing and participate in discussions.
