While students can record and upload videos in Kaltura using the Desktop Recorder, there may be circumstances where Collaborate may be more suitable (e.g. group
recordings, recordings for an entire class).
Warning! Recordings will be available to all students in the topic.
If recordings need to be private, students will need to use another method.
If you want to have a confidential discussion you can use a sandpit.
To set up a collaborate session where students can record themselves:
Click on the Session settings tab.Change the default attendee role to Moderator, and tick the Allow recording downloads box.
Click on the Create button to create your session or click on Save changes to an existing session.
Information to give to students
Send them the following information so they know what to do:
At a mutually convenient time for the whole group, enter the Collaborate session called 'Record a video in Collaborate'
Check your microphone and camera as prompted
To record your session, open the Session menu in the top left corner (the black button with the three lines). You don't have to start recording immediately - you can take a few moments to get organised.
If you are sharing a file or your screen, use the purple icon in the bottom right corner to the screen. Click on the Share button (highlighted in red below), then choose share file or share application.
- Share file is best for PowerPoint.
- Share application is best when you need to show a website or some other software application (e.g. excel)
