How Arkansas State University Converted 2,900 Video Files to Kaltura in Just One Day
Using the right video platform for your institution is essential to creating a positive and consistent user experience for students. But what happens when your institution decides to switch video platform providers? How do you convert all of those media files over from your old provider to your new one without it consuming weeks and months of precious time for faculty and staff?

In this webinar, you’ll learn about the approach Arkansas State University took when it decided to switch video platform providers from Yuja to Kaltura. And how they were able to convert nearly 3,000 video files in merely one day!

Specifically, this webinar will dive into Arkansas State University’s video platform strategy and:

1. Why they made the decision to switch video platform providers
2. The process they took to evaluate providers
3. How they converted all their video content to a new platform
4. The time saved by using an automated solution instead of doing it manually
5. Early feedback from students, faculty, and staff about the new platform

Lastly, Arkansas State University will share lessons learned about migrating to a new platform and advice they have for other institutions.

If you’re thinking of making a move to a new video platform provider, then you’ll want to join us on September 30th at 2:00 PM ET to hear how Arkansas State University successfully made the transition and how you can too!
