With Kaltura you can schedule automatic recordings of lectures or presentations or create ad hoc recordings. This powerful tool can be used for review, to supplement materials covered in class, or to provide instruction that is entirely web-based. The captured recordings can be viewed via a web browser and/or can be downloaded to a computer or mobile device. You can create both classroom recordings and personal recordings using your computer, microphone/webcam.
