The Kaltura* Capture application allows you to make recordings on your desktop or laptop computer which can then be uploaded to the QMplus Media service. Kaltura Capture is available at no cost to both staff and students at QMUL and works on both Macs and PCs. You can use it to record any combination of audio, webcam or screen.

Once you have made your recording, you can upload it to your My Media area. You can then publish the recording wherever you have publishing rights. For teachers, you can publish recordings in QMplus course areas. If you are a student, you may have been asked to submit your recording as a video assignment or to the Media Gallery for your module on QMplus. Recordings can also be published on pages in QMplus Hub.
