Create Kaltura video from within Sakai or Canvas (old recorder)

Posted at 8:57 a.m. May 11, 2016, by in Kaltura

Kaltura allows faculty, students, and staff at Rutgers to create or upload videos to a streaming server, which makes sharing them easy for everyone. You could think of our Kaltura server as Rutgers own YouTube-like service.

To launch Kaltura and create new video with CaptureSpace from within your LMS (Sakai or Canvas):

  1. Log into the LMS and select ‘My Media’
    • In Sakai, “My Media” can be found on the left-hand navigation bar in your “My Workspace” homepage
    • In Canvas, “My Media” can be found in each of your courses listed on the left-hand course navigation bar
  2. Click the “Add New” button at the top right of the screen
  3. Select “Create Recording”
  4. CaptureSpace screenshotIf this is the first time you’ve created a recording with Kaltura, you’ll need to download the CaptureSpace software (NOTE: you’ll need admin privileges on your computer to install this)
  5. If you’ve already installed CaptureSpace, wait a moment or two and it will launch automatically
  6. Select the combo you’d like to record, for instance, “screen” (note all options include audio from mic)
  7. Choose to record your full screen or just a selected area (which will require clicking “select area” to specify the window to record)
  8. You’ll get a 5-second countdown before the recording starts
  9. Press <alt>-p to pause the recording
  10. Click Done (or cancel if necessary)
  11. The new video will immediately play back; click Done in the bottom right corner of the screen
  12. Type the name of your new video and click Upload to save it to the Kaltura streaming server
  13. The video will now appear in the Kaltura “My Media” page
  14. You can embed the new video in any Sakai Lessons page or send a link from the Share button. You can also download the original video file as an mp4.
