Kaltura Guides for Students 
Kaltura Logo

Kaltura is a media tool for creating and sharing videos and can be used by students to complete video assignments. The guides below walk students through how to access Kaltura to create webcam recordings or presentations (with screen capture).

Using Kaltura for webcam recordings directly in ICON requires no additional software. To record computer screen (i.e. PowerPoint slides), users will need to download and install the Kaltura Capture software. Since the Kaltura Capture software records offline, it is also a good option for longer recordings.

If the submissions are to be uploaded to an assignment (vs. discussion), the assignment submission type should be Online --> Text Entry so the Rich Text Editor (where the Kaltura link is found) will be available to students.
