Project Updates

Migration from Kaltura to Echo in progress

Currently, all Kaltura videos are being automatically migrated to Echo360 and re-embedded in Learn.UQ courses, with no expected downtime. During the re-embedding process, a new item with an Echo360 video embed is created, while the old item containing the Kaltura video embed is hidden from students. You may wish to delete the old item with the Kaltura video. By 1 July, all Kaltura videos are expected to be converted and will be shareable from your Echo360 account.
Reminder: The EchoVideo Deep Linking tool will need to be used for embedding new videos in Learn.UQ and student video submissions.
For further information, please visit the project page or contact

Microsoft Teams for Teaching and Learning

In Semester 2 all courses will be provided with a Team, and the use of Teams for Teaching and Learning is optional. If Course Coordinators decide to utilise Teams, they will need to activate their course Team. Students enrolled in the respective Learn.UQ course will automatically be added to the corresponding Team, called 'course team'.

Adobe students as partners projects

UQ has a comprehensive licence with Adobe to use a wide range of products for teaching and learning. These products have been successfully used at other institutions to increase student prospective employment outcomes, skill sets and learning experience (see examples at WSU, RMIT and Bath Spa University). 
The next round of Student-Staff Partnership (SSP) projects is encouraging students and staff to propose projects that either:

  • co-assess the efficiency of using Adobe products within teaching and learning to enhance student outcomes
  • explore what it is that these products can be used for in teaching and learning or student experience.

Potential project ideas on this topic can be submitted for consideration for Round 4 by completing the SSP Project Submission form by 16 June.  You can learn more about the SSP program and how to submit a project idea here or by attending an upcoming information session
If you would like to discuss your project idea initially with ITaLI, please contact Deanne Gannaway.
