Use Kaltura Classroom Capture

On this page:


Kaltura Classroom Capture (KCC) is a quick and easy way to record your lecture, meeting, presentation, or other activity in an IU classroom. Recordings made with KCC use the audio and video equipment installed in the classroom, and are delivered to your Kaltura account.

To receive recordings from KCC, you need to have a Kaltura account. If you don't have an account, to create one, go to and log in. Your account will be created during the login process.

To make Kaltura recordings outside an IU classroom, use Kaltura Personal Capture.

Because Kaltura recordings take place during the class period, student questions and comments may be recorded. Kaltura recordings are copyrighted by the instructor, and are provided by the instructor and Indiana University for student personal use in connection with academic coursework at IU. Recordings may not be shared with anyone outside the class for which they are provided or be posted to another website (including YouTube, Facebook, BlipTV, or any other site) without express written permission from the instructor. Any unauthorized use, copying, or distribution of Kaltura recordings may result in disciplinary action and may also lead to civil or criminal penalties.

Because of the possibility of unforeseen technical issues, there is no guarantee that all class sessions will be properly recorded. It is important for students to attend class, actively participate, and take notes. If you miss a class session, there may not be a recording available.

Scheduled recording

You can schedule KCC recordings to automatically record your recurring class sessions. To request scheduled KCC recording, go to and click Request Lecture Capture.

When using scheduled recording, you'll need to log into the classroom's instructor computer. If no one is logged in, scheduled recordings will not occur.

Ad hoc recording

You can use KCC to make an ad hoc recording from the instructor computer in any general inventory classroom.

To make an ad hoc KCC recording:

  1. Select or adjust audio and video devices using the camera (1), audio (2), and screen settings (3) buttons:
    Kaltura Classroom Capture screen with camera (1), audio (2), and screen settings (3) buttons highlighted
  2. Click the large red button above "Start Recording".
  3. When recording is in progress, you may stop (1) to end and finalize the recording, pause/unpause (2) to temporarily interrupt or resume recording, or cancel (3) to abort and discard the current recording.
    Options while recording
  4. When you are finished, click the stop button.
  5. On the "Recording Complete" screen, in the "Title" field, enter a descriptive title for your recording; in the "User Name" field, enter the username of the recording's owner:
    Kaltura Classroom Capture metadata screen with title and user name fields filled in
  6. Click Save.
    If you click Save without entering a username, your recording may be recoverable. Send mail to and provide the recording date, start time, end time, and title, and UITS Learning Spaces Support will attempt to recover your recording.
