You can upload videos located in your Kaltura My Media folder directly into your Moodle course's Media Gallery. These instructions apply to students in your course as well.

Note: Once your media is published inside the course media gallery, it is visible to students. Videos uploaded to the Course Media Gallery is NOT backed up in the Moodle backup process and will need to be added again in a new course.

Note: Your course media gallery is not included in Moodle course backups. Any videos inside the course media gallery is unique to that course and will need to be re-added once restored into a new Moodle course.
