  4. Voice Recording

To use the Kaltura Desktop Recorder version of Webcam Recording, follow these instructions:

  • One of the best ways to access the Kaltura Desktop Recorder is by using your personal media collection called MY MEDIA. From a Canvas course, use the left-hand navigation features and select MY MEDIA from the various components for your course.

     

    A window appears displaying the content items that are part of your personal collection in MY MEDIA.

     

     

    In the upper right, select the drop down menu ADD NEW.

    The Kaltura Desktop Recorder recording tools appear under the option MORE RECORDING APPS:

  • Select More Recording Apps

The control panel for the Desktop Recorder opens.

  • Click the tab labeled RECORD.
  • Click the tile labeled WEBCAM. You are now recording audio and video from your computer's camera and microphone. 

  • Click the DONE button to stop recording.
  • Edit, Trim and add titles to your recording using the Kaltura Editing Tool that launches after recording.
  • Click the DONE button when finished editing and trimming.

 

Uploading the recording is the final step.  The upload is to your collection of content in MY MEDIA.  This is your personal storage space for video and audio files you may wish to transfer into a Canvas course.

After the editing is complete (and you have clicked the DONE button), you will be presented with a window labeled "Upload Options."

  • Enter a TITLE for your recording.
  • The DESCRIPTION field is optional.
  • For a TAG, consider entering your Canvas Course Number.
