Kaltura Personal Capture
Overview of the Kaltura Capture application that is integrated in the Canvas learning management system
Kaltura Personal Capture offers users the ability to capture both screen and camera in just one click. It also includes a new automatic slide detection feature – if a user has a PowerPoint presentation in presenter mode when recording the screen, Kaltura Personal Capture automatically detects and captures it, making videos more searchable and discoverable. Kaltura also automatically captures metadata from slides and audio, which are made immediately searchable as well.
It seamlessly uploads new videos into the user’s My Media folder in Canvas, making it easy for students to create professional video with multiple feeds, including slides.
The Kaltura Personal Capture application can be downloaded from anywhere you have access to My Media in Canvas such as:
- Your Canvas Account menu, located at the top of the black navigation bar.
- Course Navigation: My Media is not added to the course navigation by default. It must be added by the course instructor.
[Canvas Instructor] - How to add My Media to your Course Navigation
- Rich Text Editor: The rich text editor can be accessed in Discussions & Assignments.
[Canvas Instructor] - In order for students to have access to the rich text editor for an assignment, the following assignment settings must be true:
- Submission Type = Online
- Entry Options = Must include Text Entry.
