ToW: New Screencasting Tool Available

Trinity has recently contracted with Kaltura streaming video services, which, in addition to providing online access to our video content, offers several media tools you can use in your teaching.

Capturespace screenshotCapturespace, at right, is a screencasting tool that actually does much more than record the screen. It offers several options for combining voice, screen, Webcam, and powerpoint. The “Presentations & Lectures” option at the top allows you to record a 2-in-1 cast: an on-screen powerpoint presentation in one window, with a Webcam recording of your commentary running in another window. Both windows can be moved around the screen during playback by the user. 

Capturespace is currently accessed through Moodle. Once logged into Moodle, click on “My Media” under the Dashboard in the upper left. Click “Add new,” then “CaptureSpace.” You will be prompted to download the application, and then you can get started. When you are done recording, your work will be saved in My Media in Moodle, and you can share it with any of your courses, or download it and share it outside of Moodle. 

If you have any questions or would like to come in for assistance, please contact Amy Harrell, amy.harrell@trincoll.edu
