DeakinAir is Deakin’s video platform. The DeakinAir platform is based on Kaltura software.

DeakinAir allows for a lot more interactivity between CloudDeakin unit sites and the DeakinAir interface. When you upload a DeakinAir video to CloudDeakin you will be able to access basic editing functions, change publishing status, create subclips and share your videos in the unit’s Media Gallery, all from within the CloudDeakin environment.

DTeach have created a suite of resources to assist you to become more familiar with DeakinAir. Below you can find step-by-step PDF guides covering all of the DeakinAir basic features.


To make video more accessible for all individuals and those with disabilities, DeakinAir will automatically add machine generated captions. With the addition of machine captions DeakinAir now has an extra functionality. You can now order, edit closed captions in DeakinAir and disable them if needed.

Videos uploaded prior to Trimester 2 2020 will not have captions automatically added to them, but the media owner of pre-existing videos on DeakinAir can order captions if needed.

Refer to Kaltura Reach Guide for more information.
