Kaltura: Importing Videos From a Previous Canvas Course

If your previous Canvas course used MediaCosmos (Ensemble) videos or Kaltura videos in a Media Gallery, you can import them to your current course’s Media Gallery.

A Media Gallery does not get copied when copying other Canvas content using the Canvas Course Import Tool.

  1. Optional: If you want to preview the videos in a previous Canvas course’s Media Gallery, in your Global Navigation, click on “Courses” and select the course. You may have to click on “All Courses” in the Courses List to find the course. Videos that were migrated from the previous video system are in Canvas courses that start with “Kaltura -.” After clicking on the course name, then click on “Media Gallery” from the Course Navigation Menu. Enable "My Media" and "Media Gallery"
  2. Go to your new Canvas course where you want to import an existing Media Gallery. If you don’t see “My Media” and “Media Gallery” in your Course Navigation Menu on the left, enable it by going to Settings >> Navigation. Drag-and-drop “My Media” and “Media Gallery” up to the visible section of the course navigation and click on the “Save” button.
  3. From the Course Navigation Menu on the left, click on “Media Gallery.”
  4. Import videos from another Canvas course to your current Canvas course by clicking on Channel Actions >> Import or the “click here” import link. Import Media Gallery
