Instructors can use Kaltura to record short lectures or instructional videos and easily share them with their students. Kaltura allows you to create these videos by recording what is happening on your computer screen as well as what you are saying into a microphone. The end result is a video like this:
Some instructors use Kaltura in conjunction with the hand-writing features of their tablet computer. This allows them to talk about content like math problems that require them to write-out things as they explain them. Check out how Professor John Buck from Engineering has done this below:
Unlike Echo360, you can install Kaltura on your own computer and record videos whenever and wherever you want to. Kaltura stores your recordings online in a personalized “My Media” library. These videos can be easily embedded in myCourses or shared just about anywhere online that you would like to put them. You maintain full control of the videos you record and can delete or hide them at any time.
