Kaltura is the video platform we use at Albright to record, store, and share video. You can easily add videos to any area of your Canvas course: pages, assignments, discussions, announcements, etc. This document demonstrates adding video to a page, but the process is the same for other areas.

Note: If you have already recorded your video in another program and just need to upload it, see directions at the end of this document.

On the Modules page, go to the module where you want to add the video. Click the plus sign.

Choose Page from the dropdown menu. Click New Page. Fill in a name for the page. This is the name students will see on the Modules page in the course. Click Add Item.

Click Embed Kaltura Media.

Click Add New. Choose Express Capture. Or, if you’ve already recorded your video, see directions below.

Click the red button on the video player when you are ready to record. When you are done recording, click the white button next to the time display. Select Record Again if you need to redo your recording. Select Use This when you are satisfied with your recording.

When the progress bar shows completion, fill in a name. This name will be visible to students at the top of the video. Add a description for yourself if desired. Click Published. Click Save and Embed.

You’ll now see your video on the page in Canvas. Add any directions or information needed to give context to the video for students. ClickSave in the lower right.
