Kaltura Capture

Kaltura Capture is screen recording software that’s free to use for all UCSD community members.

Kaltura is the third-party company with whom UC San Diego has partnered to host and deliver video content within Canvas and MediaSpace. That partnership also allows UC San Diego community members to use their screen capture software for free.

Kaltura Capture is a desktop application free to all UC San Diego community members that allows users to record their camera, screen, and microphone. Though the software retains recording files on your computer's hard drive, all recordings are also automatically uploaded to your "My Media" area of Canvas. With that in mind, Kaltura Capture is a great and easy way to create course videos.

One of the unique features of Kaltura Capture is that if multiple video sources are captured (e.g. a camera and a screen), the viewer has the ability to choose the arrangement of these two sources. Research suggests that even a modicum of user control over multimedia content can increase engagement.
