Automatic Video Migration Timeline
Which videos will get automatically migrated from your course? 

All course videos recorded in Kaltura will be migrated to Canvas Studio as long as the video has been watched at least 10 times in the last four years, since January 1, 2019. [Note: Zoom recordings will not be included in the migration to Studio.]

When will the video migration from Kaltura to Canvas Studio take place? 
Kaltura to Canvas Studio migration will take place after grades are due but before summer term begins, during the week of May 16, 2023. However, Canvas and Canvas Studio will be available for use during the migration process. 

Kaltura Available Until June 30, 2024
What happens to those videos that were not automatically migrated from Kaltura to Canvas Studio?

Kaltura videos will still be available for viewing through the entire upcoming academic year  (i.e., view-only mode, not recording or editing). That means all Kaltura videos will be viewable by you or your students in Canvas courses.  This overlap year will allow you ample time to review any videos that you wish to keep that did not get automatically migrated and to manually migrate them yourself before July 2024.
