Echo360 and Kaltura will convert whatever format video you upload into its own format. In some cases, this may degrade the quality of the video slightly.
It is still important that you keep copies of your original video material on your computer, on portable media (such as USB sticks) or in cloud storage (preferably all three).
Local computer storage
Keep a copy of your video files not only in your OneDrive, iCloud or Dropbox, but at home or on your laptop as well.
USB sticks may be a good portable option, and can also be used simply as a backup.
Online file storage (or "cloud" storage) can come in many forms that you have probably encountered, such as Cloudstor, Apple iCloud, Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive, or Dropbox. Most of these services have a free space option that you can use.
CloudStor lets you store up to 1TB free storage. You can use CloudStor using your ACU account.
If you are using CloudStor for the first time, please follow the instructions below:
1. Go to this link https://cloudstor.aarnet.edu.au/
2. Click Australian Catholic University from the list of institutions provided.
3. You will be directed to an ACU log-in page, please log-in with your ACU account.
Once you have logged in successfully you will be taken to the library homepage.
