    1. If you selected specific days, click the “Schedule Recordings” button at the bottom of the page to reach the Recording Options pop-up
    2. If you click Record All, the Recording Options will pop up
  4. Recording Options:
      1. If you will be sharing all recordings automatically with your students, select Yes for “Add Course Podcast”
      2. If you don’t want video, select Yes for “Record Audio Only”
      3. If you want to manually choose which recordings you’ll share with students, and when, select Yes for “Upload to Kaltura”
      4. If you want to know which students review the recordings, select Yes for “Track Playback”
      5. Now click the “Schedule Recordings” button again
  5. Note: If you chose Record All and want to eliminate certain dates from recording, click the Edit box RUCams edit box and change “Cancel Recording” to Yes and then Save.

When you’re in class: there’s nothing you need to do to start or stop the recording! The class will record automatically during your scheduled class time.

Step 2: Share automatically from your Canvas site

These steps will make all of your scheduled recordings automatically available to your students. Please contact us at 856-225-6090 or at if you’d like to make the videos available, but would prefer to review them first.

Canvas Redirect app

Redirect tool in Canvas

  1. After requesting recordings (see above), copy the “Podcast URL” from the top of your course’s RUCams page; it will look begin like this, with a unique code at the end: Podcast Url:<unique code>

    1. Go to your course site in Canvas and click on Settings, the last option in the left-hand course menu
    2. Select the Apps tab at the top. In the search bar that says “Filter by name,” type in “redirect.” Note that the blue “All” button should be selected to the left of the search bar. The redirect tool should appear in the area below. It looks like a looped blue arrow.
    3. Click the arrow icon representing the Redirect Tool.
    4. Click “Add App” (install first if necessary)
    5. A pop up window should appear. Enter Class Recordings for Name. For “URL Redirect,” paste the Podcast URL that you copied from Step 1.
