How do I add a Kaltura Classroom Capture recordings to my Canvas course site?

This article provides resources that instructors can use to add Kaltura Classroom Capture recordings to a Canvas course site for student access.

Kaltura Classroom Capture is the lecture capture solution that is available in most physical classroom at UWM. While UWM’s Classroom Services manages lecture capture needs in the physical classroom, this article provides resources for how to setup and use lecture capture tools in UWM’s face-to-face classrooms.

Step #1:

Watch the "Lecture Capture Overview for Fall 2021 at UWM” workshop recording:

Step #2:

Step #3:

Once you’ve successfully created a lecture capture recording, the recordings will be automatically uploaded to your My Media account. My Media is designed to distribute audio and video files efficiently and reliably. My Media will display the video (or audio file) in the browser with controls and, best of all, students do not need any special hardware or software to view the videos. You can verify that the Kaltura Classroom Capture recordings have been successfully uploaded to My Media by following these instructions: 


Login to Canvas
  1. Click Account in the global navigation on the left. 
  2. Select My Media.

Step #3:

Kaltura Classroom Capture will not automatically appear in your Canvas course site. There are two ways that instructors can make these recordings available to students from within your Canvas course site:

Option #1 - Embed recording in a Page: 

The first option is the preferred method. With this method you embed the video into a Page in the Modules area of your Canvas course site. This method is preferred because you can organize the recordings chronologically for students (e.g. the recordings from the second week of classes are added into a Module called “Week 2”). Instructions for this method can be found here:

Option #2 - Publish recording to Media Gallery: 

The second option is to publish the recordings to a special tool, called a Media Gallery. This tool can be accessed through the Canvas navigation and will allow students to see all the recordings that have been copied to your My Media account in one place. This distribution method is more confusing for students since they will not necessarily know to go to a separate navigation item to find recordings. In addition, recordings are dated, but not organized within modules chronologically. There are two steps to allow students viewing access to the Media Gallery. First, you’ll need to add the Media Gallery tool to your course navigation. Next, you’ll need to publish any recordings that have been copied to your My Media account to the Media Gallery in the course site:
