Kaltura-Webex Recordings Integration

To ensure our Webex instance remains at the forefront of innovation, our Webex environment is undergoing an upgrade with minimal changes for instructors and students. This upgrade comes with a significant change to the automatic transfer of Webex recordings to Kaltura. For most instructors, the connection between Webex and Kaltura will remain intact. However, any instructor who also has a email account including Graduate Teaching Assistants and instructors who are taking classes at GSU will need to perform a quick manual migration of their content to Kaltura if they wish to have content preserved in Kaltura. Recordings can still be viewed from Webex if desired. You can find guides for downloading recordings from Webex and loading recordings into Kaltura here:
