Kaltura: Add chapters to a Kaltura video

Kaltura allows you to mark cue points - or chapters - in your video. This allows for easier navigation of media, particularly lengthy videos. For instance, a one hour recording of a lecture might have a break at the 30 minute mark. Cue points can be added to indicate the start of the second part of the lecture, allowing viewers to easily jump to this chapter.
