Kaltura – Kaltura Capture Desktop Recorder

Use Kaltura Capture to easily record yourself and/or your screens to create recordings that can seamlessly upload to your personal media repository in Canvas. Recordings that feature multiple sources (webcam and screen, for instance) will be visible in Canvas through Kaltura’s interactive rich media player allowing students to choose how they wish view the recording: Picture-in-picture, side-by-side, or only focus on one source.

To get started, be sure you meet the minimum system requirements and proceed to access My Media:

Installation instructions for first use:

  1. Log in to canvas.unm.edu.
  2. In the Global Navigation, Click Account > My Media.

Important Note for MacOS users: Certain versions of MacOS may block the Kaltura Capture application from accessing screen recording and your microphone. See https://knowledge.kaltura.com/help/how-to-enable-security-setting-on-mac-osx for details on addressing this.

Creating a Kaltura Capture recording:

After installing Kaltura Capture, you can choose to launch the application through My Media > Add New > Kaltura Capture or by finding the application locally on your computer.

With Kaltura Capture you can mix and match combinations of cameras, screens and microphone. Use the icons to toggle which of these sources you want to include in your recording, and the dropdown menus to select different devices. If the source is blue and not grayed out, it will be included in your recording.
