DeakinAir is Deakin University’s dedicated online video service, based on the Kaltura platform. Over the last few months a project team has been working to move our platform to the cloud. This upgrade will provide new features and change the way you perform some tasks.
The new version of DeakinAir can be accessed directly at video.deakin.edu.au, login is with your Deakin username and password.
The DeakinAir link within the My Tools menu will take you to your My Media area where you can upload and manage your video content.
The Media Gallery link within the More Menu will take you to a Gallery of videos for your unit. You can add to this gallery and allow students to add content also.
The video post widget provided in the new CloudDeakin template is available for you to publish your recordings for your unit. There is a tutorial on how to achieve this located within DeakinAir.
You can continue to use DeakinAir from the Insert Stuff menu from within the WYSIWYG editors within resources, discussions, news items etc.
DeakinAir now comes with a desktop tool “CaptureSpace Lite” which you can download to capture your screen or webcam.
You can record any of these combinations of media sources. You can add Titles, credits or edit your recording and then upload straight to the server. Videos can then be embedded into your unit site or other web page.
Note: Firefox is the recommended browser to use CaptureSpace from.
On the new DeakinAir you can select your own thumbnail, add a captions file and add slides to your videos.
When you edit a video in DeakinAir now, you can now allocate collaborators who can either edit, or publish your videos.
We have developed a tool that can link an IAM group to a channel or category so that you can view your team’s videos and work on them together. More information to follow.
Tutorial videos have been created and can be found in the Tutorials menu of the new platform.
User Guides have been created by the TeachAssist team and can be found at http://teachassist.deakin.edu.au/resources/deakinair-guides/
Your Faculty support teams have been working with the project to be able to assist you with any questions you may have of DeakinAir.
Teach Assist are also available to assist you with the usage of the tools provided and if you have any issues please contact the IT Service Desk.
There are 2 phases for migration.
Content was copied in the last week of February and the relinking of content will be an ongoing task. The old system will honour these links until later in the year once all links have been updated.
Any questions on migration should be directed to the DeakinAir Migration project (email: firstname.lastname@example.org )
If you have any issues with the system please raise a ticket with the IT Service Desk. who can route your query to the appropriate support team.
