Mediaspace by Kaltura
If you want to host videos to promote your work or your online courses, EPFL offers the ‘Videos & Streaming’ service, via a Kaltura platform (which will progressively replace the Switchtube and SwitchCAST platforms as of February 14th 2023).
Similar to Youtube, but intended for Swiss universities, mediaspace by Kaltura provides EPFL units (labs..) with a space to manage videos and broadcasting channels. These videos can then be embedded on web pages and ôn Moodle, viewed directly on the platform or added to playlists.
The platform offers videos editing tools and some features to easily create video quizzes or to make a ”Zoom” recording with Kaltura Capture.
Mediaspace is GDPR compliant (General Data Protection Regulations).
Kaltura solution is hosted by Switch on its own servers in Switzerland (see ‘Terms & conditions‘ by Switch).
The service is not intended to host scientific material (research data, filmed experiments…).
