The Kaltura My Media feature offers several ways you can upload media directly to your Blackboard course. The My Media page serves as a private video gallery where you may upload, record, and manage your media content. First, you load media into your Blackboard My Media page where you can edit if you want. Once a media file resides in your My Media, it can be linked to your course and shared with the other instructors and TAs so they may use it within your course.
Kaltura can be used to embed quiz questions at various points in recorded lectures to ensure students are 1) engaged and 2) viewing the entire video. More instructions about how to create a video quiz can be found in the Assignments, Quizzes, and Tests section of this guide by clicking here.
Here are instructions for setting the recording settings.
Don't worry if the recording starts before you make your media full screen, or if you do not start your narration right when the countdown ends. You can edit the video later.
7. Click the small horizontal "dash" in the upper right corner of the Kaltura Capture control panel to hide it.
Everything on screen will be visible in the video you record, including the Kaltura Capture control panel. If you don't want to include it, click the dash in the upper-right corner to minimize it.
Advance your slides and speak as you normally would. Everything on your screen is being recorded, including your mouse movements, and any applications or other onscreen objects that you interact with.
Note: videos that you play on screen will not record well in Kaltura Capture, because the audio will not be recorded and image quality will suffer. We recommend posting additional videos separately from the recordings you make with Kaltura Capture.
When you're done presenting, hit the "escape" key on your keyboard to exit full screen mode (if you are in PowerPoint).
If you minimized the Kaltura Capture control panel during your recording it will be in your Tray (PC) or dock (Mac). The tray and dock are the list of icons usually arranged at the bottom of the screen.
Look in the tray or dock for the Kaltura Capture icon (shown below). Click the icon to access the Kaltura Capture control panel.
RECOMMENDATION: Change the name of your recording to something that is meaningful to you and specific to the video. This will allow you to search for and find the recording in Kaltura My Media later.
The Description and Tags fields are optional, but can help you categorize your videos to aid in search. Depending on how you share your videos with others the name and description may be visible to them.
Note: in order to share your video with others or to edit it with the Kaltura Video Editor, you must first upload it. To do that click "Save & Upload".
Note: if you want to save the file locally on your computer, but NOT upload it, click "Save".
In the Edit Media window, you can:
Before you begin, make sure the Edit Mode is ON.
