You’ll first need to view the instructions on accessing and installing Kaltura Capture before making a webcam recording. These directions are for creating a new video with just a webcam and mic.

  1. Make sure your webcam is connected to your computer before you start
  2. Log into Canvas and find My Kaltura Media from the red global navigation menu.
  3. Click the blue “Add New” button in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.
  4. Select Kaltura Personal Capture from the drop-down list. Selecting Express Capture limits your recording options. (If you are recording from outside of Canvas in the Kaltura MediaSpace, select the + Create button and then Capture. Otherwise, the directions are the same.)
  5. Your computer will ask you to  Open Kaltura Capture.
  6. The Kaltura CaptureSpace Desktop Recorder will open on your computer. Choose the camera and audio icons. Select the red button to start your recording. (See image)Webcam only settings
  7. Speak your piece, then select the gray square to stop the recording
  8. A new recording window will appear where you can preview the video.
  9. You can also update the title of the video and add a description.
  10. Click Save and Upload. (See image below)
