Using Kaltura Capture, Zoom, and Collaborate Ultra in SRSU-TSUS Blackboard

Using Kaltura Lecture Capture

Kaltura Capture Desktop Recorder enables easy video creation anywhere by anyone. Kaltura Capture has a simple user interface, requiring only one click to record, without complex setup or a lengthy learning curve. Kaltura Capture is supported on both Windows and Mac. You can record two camera inputs at once, two screens, or a camera and a screen.

if you choose to use Kaltura Lecture Capture on your SRSU computer, you will need to have OIT install the software, but you are free to install Kaltura on your personal work computers. The process for downloading and installing on your personal computer can be found in the “SHSU Blackboard Kaltura How-To” video below.

To request having Kaltura installed on your SRSU desktop or laptop, please contact our SRSU OIT Helpdesk (LTAC) by calling 888.837.2882 or email
