Kaltura provide a range of video tools and services for students studying with the University of Northampton.
In these Getting Started guides we provide an overview of all the various Kaltura services. The Kaltura Capture desktop recorder which enables you to record your screen, webcam or microphone. The MediaSpace video platform where you can upload, edit and share video and audio content recorded using Kaltura Capture or your mobile device. The Blackboard Mashup which enables students to submit video for assessment and the Kaltura mobile app, known as KMS Go, which lets you upload video on the go and download content to view offline.
These guides will help you to get started with Kaltura but remember to seek guidance from your module tutor if you are recording video for assessment. If you would prefer to watch or listen to video tutorials on the Kaltura video services then go to the MediaSpace platform and select the Video Tutorials tab.
The design of the Capture recorder makes it easy to create videos from your desktop. The recorder has been built from scratch and lays the groundwork for some powerful capture features coming in the future.
Kaltura Capture offers you the ability to easily capture both screen and camera. It also now includes a new automatic slide detection feature which means if you have a PowerPoint presentation in presenter mode when recording your screen, Kaltura Capture automatically detects and captures it, making your video much more searchable.
Kaltura Capture uploads new videos into your My Media folder and makes them available on MediaSpace as well as our Blackboard VLE for teaching and for assessment. It enables academic staff, students, faculty, and other users to create a professional video with multiple feeds, including slides. It can be used for video assignments, assessments, feedback, demonstrations, course content creation, blog posts, administration communications, alumni outreach, and sharing information between institutions.
MediaSpace is your own personal video storage and streaming service. Upload your video or audio content to your My Media library and then edit it, share it in NILE or submit it for assessment. Your content is private, secure and available to you as a student or a member of staff for the University of Northampton.
The Blackboard Mashup tool enables students to submit video or audio recordings into NILE for assessment.
