Using Kaltura and My Media
The Kaltura video server allows both instructors and students the ability to create, upload, and publish video in courses. Faculty have the ability to record content (i.e.…webpages, Word documents, PowerPoint presentations or software demos) with or without their webcams. Kaltura Capture is a recording software that can be downloaded and used to record short content videos and them upload them to My Media and insert them into course areas in Canvas.
