Video in WebCampus

Pre-recorded lectures or video segments to reinforce learning can be effective tools to enhance your instruction. When used as an alternative to face-to-face instruction or live web conferencing, recorded lectures provide the advantage of reusability and offer enhancements such as the ability to combine visual and audio elements, and the option to share widely in an asynchronous delivery format.

Recording lectures

You can prepare video lectures by using PowerPoint to combine slides with audio narration. PowerPoint allows you to save your finished presentation as a video that contains all of the visual elements, timings, and recorded narrations.

Recording your screen

Frequently, video instruction is used for tutorials, or step-by-step how-tos. Whether this is recording a sequence of steps for using a software package, or demonstrating how to navigate to resources on the web, screen recording allows you to show instead of tell.

Screen recording with Kaltura

Kaltura Capture is available for all instructors through WebCampus. Capture allows you to quickly record your screen and upload so that you may post the video and make it available to your students.


Kaltura offers an integrated full-featured video platform within WebCampus. Since Kaltura is fully integrated into WebCampus, there is no new software to download and install, allowing you to use this tool wherever you have access to the Internet.

Kaltura is intended for streaming delivery only. Videos are re-encoded and source files are not stored. Videos that are un-played for greater than a year are categorized for possible deletion. For these reasons, we recommend that you always keep copies of your originals.

Student content is removed from Kaltura 120 days after the end of the semester in which it was created/uploaded.
