Using Screencast-O-Matic to Record Videos

Like Kaltura Personal Capture, Screencast-O-Matic is a video recording and editing tool that can be utilized for self-producing videos. While Kaltura/My Media is all embedded within Canvas, Screencast-O-Matic is external to Canvas.

If you haven't already, visit Screencast-O-Matic's website to download the free recorded and start your recording. You will need to click the buttons for "Start Recording for Free" and then "Launch Free Recorder".

To record yourself, choose "Webcam". To record your desktop (screencast), choose "Screen". Alternatively, choose "Both" to simultaneously record your webcam and screen. Click the "Narration" setting to select the correct microphone.

When screencasting, everything within the dotted-lined box will be captured in the recording. You can adjust the size of the box by dragging the corners or sides.

After recording is done, choose "Save As Video File" (.mp4) and upload the video to Kaltura My Media.

Additional Screencast-O-Matic tutorials are available on their website.
