Did you know that instructors use Kaltura to record short, narrated lectures or instructional how-to videos and easily share them with their students in myCourses? This includes verbal feedback to students on their assessment submissions!
Kaltura allows you to create short narrated videos by recording your computer screen as well as what you are saying into a microphone, (such as a built-in laptop microphone). Kaltura stores your recordings online in a personalized “My Media” library. These videos can then be easily embedded in myCourses where ever the myCourses Text Editor appears. You maintain full control of the videos you record and can delete or hide them at any time. Simply install Kaltura on your own computer and start recording today!
