Screen Recording

Screen recording is a great way to turn your Powerpoint-based presentation into a video that can be watched online. Our office supports Kaltura Capture and Zoom, but we are also happy to help you with other software of your choice.

If you have any questions, please contact our office.


Adjusting Microphone Volume

Before you start recording, it is important to make sure your microphone volume is set correctly. This video explains how to adjust the microphone volume in MacOS and Windows 10. Correctly setting the microphone volume before recording is one of the most important tips for producing quality videos.

Zoom Video Presentation

The Zoom Video Conferencing app is not only a great tool for video meetings, but it can also function as a standalone recorder for video presentations. By initiating a "video conference" without any other participants, you have access to all of Zoom's tools including screen recording, white boarding, and recording.

Uploading Video to MyMedia in Canvas

The easiest way to upload videos to MyMedia and embed them in your course is to do it all in Canvas. The guide and tutorial video below explains how.

Please note: Videos should not be uploaded directly to your Canvas course, but to MyMedia. Canvas courses do not have enough storage space to accommodate more than a few short video clips.
