Use Kaltura Express Recording

Express Recording lets you make basic recordings in Kaltura at Indiana University. Unlike Kaltura Classroom Capture and Personal Capture, Express Recording does not require the installation of any software on your computer.

The first time you use Express Recording, you may be prompted to let your browser access your webcam and microphone. To change devices, in the top right corner of the Express Recording preview, click the Settings icon.

To use Express Recording:

  1. Log into Kaltura MediaSpace by clicking the Guest icon (Guest icon in MediaSpace or Guest button in MediaSpace). If prompted, log in with your IU username and passphrase.
  2. Click Add New, and then select Express Recording.
    You may need to widen your screen to see all available options.
  3. To begin recording, click the red Record icon.
  4. To end your recording, click the Stop icon. You will be presented with three options:
    • Record Again: Click this to discard your recording and immediately begin a new one.
    • Use This: Click this to upload your recording to MediaSpace. After clicking, enter a title, and then click Save.
    • Save a copy: Click this to download a .webm file of your recording. For more about WebM, see The WebM Project.

After they are uploaded with the Use This option, recordings made with Express Recording behave like all other Kaltura content. They will be closed-captioned, can be published to Canvas, and can be downloaded.
