Kaltura "My Media" is a video and audio streaming service, similar to YouTube, located within Canvas. Anyone at UWEC can use Kaltura, even if you are not creating or sharing a video for a specific class. Videos are only accessible by the creator unless shared via URL or within a Canvas course.

Recording with Kaltura:
To record yourself speaking:
- Kaltura has a new Webcam Recorder option under Add New. No download needed! Here are Webcam Recorder instructions from UW-Madison.
- Canvas has a similar feature, except it only stores the video in Canvas (instructions for students / instructions for instructors). This often works well for student video introductions or other quick recordings that would not be reused. It can take a long time to process, so if your video is more than a few minutes long you may want to use the Kaltura Webcam Recorder instead.
To record the computer screen (a screencast):
- Kaltura Capture: This is Kaltura's new recording tool. More information: Install KalturaCapture - Windows & Mac / Record with KalturaCapture.
To record a PowerPoint with audio:
- It is usually best to record the audio within PPT's Record Slideshow feature, then export it as an mp4 since PPT records audio per slide, making it easy to re-record a slide if you make a mistake. This works well on both Windows and Mac. Here are instructions.
- Kaltura has a video editor which allows for basic editing such as editing out mistakes or creating clips. Here is a video showing how to use the Kaltura editor.
