Lecture Capture






Enables faculty to schedule automatic recordings of lectures or presentations, or to create ad hoc captures in their classroom or on their KU workstation or personal computer. Online lectures provide students with a powerful tool that can be used for review, to supplement materials covered in class, or to provide entirely online instruction. The captured recordings can be viewed via a web browser, posted in Canvas, and lectures can be downloaded to a computer or mobile device.

Lecture Capture Information for Instructors

KU licenses video capture and on-demand delivery of video files from a cloud vendor called Kaltura. There are two Kaltura options for Capture at KU:

  • Kaltura Classroom: Scheduled or impromptu recordings via equipment and software already installed in classrooms.
  • Kaltura Capture: Recordings created via webcam/microphone and software installed on your work or personal desktop or laptop computer.
