There may be broken links in this article, the GROK staff has been notified and is working to resolve the issue.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Kaltura's screen recorder will not be available for new versions of Chrome or Microsoft Edge due to to the fact that they do not support Java plug-ins.

General Information

The Kaltura plugin for desktop allows users to capture part of their screen and send it directly to their Kaltura library. It boasts several features that enable instructors to record and manage video and audio content in their Moodle courses.
Specifically, it provides a Kaltura Video Assignment and a Kaltura Video Resource option. Any videos uploaded through these means are manageable through the My Media area in your Moodle Navigation Block. Additionally, the plugin provides some viewership metrics in the form of per-course reports.

The Screen Capture feature allows you to record an image of your screen activities as a video and include an audio narration. You can also insert a video image of yourself through a webcam.

NOTE – this feature requires the JAVA plug-in to be installed and active within your browser. For Download information about JAVA, see: http://java.com/en/download/.

6. If you have a webcam on your computer, you can also include a video image of yourself. To enable this option, click the Video Menu and select your camera. The video image will be inserted on the lower right of your capture area. The video image will not appear within the frame while you are recording. If you are recording a PowerPoint presentation, you may want to allow extra space on the right side of the frame so that your video image does not cover your presentation slides.
