Install and use IU's Kaltura Personal Capture

On this page:


Kaltura Personal Capture is a desktop application that helps you record presentations and screencasts using any combination of voice, webcam video, screen action, and PowerPoint slides. You can then upload and manage your recordings alongside other Kaltura content in MediaSpace and/or the Kaltura tools in Canvas (My Media and Media Gallery).

Personal Capture has a maximum recording time of two hours. If you are recording and reach the two-hour mark, Personal Capture will end the recording.
