Video Help for Classes

Video Platform Video Management Video Solutions Video Player

Video and audio can be used both during and outside of class time to bring an extra dimension to your course. We in Academic Technologies have developed this site to help you understand the video and audio options that are available for instructors at Cornell, as well as information to help you incorporate video and audio into your teaching. As always, feel free to email us at for help with preparing video for your course.

Want to share video with your class? Using Kaltura with Blackboard is our recommended method for posting media files for instructional use. You can find out more about the advantages of using Kaltura on the page Posting Video Online; instructions for using Kaltura can be found on the BB Help site (“Working With Video“). If you’d like some help using Kaltura, or your video needs to be converted to electronic format before you can load it up, contact us at and we can help you out.

Information on this site includes:

  • Video Basics: players, formats, and delivery options. Ever wonder what an flv file is? Or what is the difference between downloading and streaming? You can find that here.
  • Teaching ideas: if you like the idea of video, but aren’t sure about how to incorporate it, we have some ideas for you in this section.
  • Do-it-Yourself Audio and Video: those who want to create their own video, or who are interested in uploading video themselves, will find useful information here.
  • Audio and Video Production Services: Cornell has a variety of audio and video production, hosting, and digitization services for you to choose from.
