Kaltura Capture Desktop Recording tool is a free tool students and instructors can download to their computer for capturing video via webcam, screen casting, audio or multiple modes. If you don’t already have a video recorder on your computer you may wish to download this free tool. The best benefit of using the tool is that it is programmed to upload your captured video to your My Media collection on the NIC Kaltura platform.

There are two ways for NIC instructors and students to download the tool – via NIC MediaSpace (public facing doorway) and via Brightspace (digital learning environment doorway). It is the same tool and works the same way whether you download the tool via MediaSpace or Brightspace.
