Editing and Sharing Zoom Recordings in Kaltura

Editing and Sharing Zoom Recordings in Kaltura

When you record your Zoom session, that recording video is automatically saved to Kaltura under a preset name. This automatic recording is also by default not shareable with a URL link. This video explains how to edit the titles of your Zoom recordings and adjust their visibility settings so that you can easily share your recordings with anyone else through a simple URL link. Sharing videos with a URL link is a great way to share your videos with individual students or with those who are not enrolled in your Canvas course.

To share videos with your entire class, we recommend embedding the videos directly into Canvas. The second link in the “Helpful Resources” section below explains how to do this.

Clickers Be Gone: What Now?

Clickers Be Gone: Now What?

With iClicker support at Penn State ending in Spring 2022, this session explores alternative technologies and strategies for interactive polling in your courses and explores some considerations as you transition away from iClicker use. This session discusses the University’s decision to discontinue iClicker, identifies potential criteria for an ideal alternative, compares popular/available tools against ideal criteria, and introduces Top Hat – the University’s recommended replacement for iClicker – by providing an overview of the polling and attendance functions and discussing considerations for use.

Scaling Courses for Growing and Changing Enrollments

Session Slides

Student enrollments are beginning to shift to reflect the long-term desire of some students for flexible learning with the option of accessing the robust remote learning designs you offered during the pandemic. Enrollments may increase or may vary in delivery mode with students attending class from multiple audiences (face-to-face, hybrid, and/or online/asynchronous). In this session, we discussed how to respond to the growing demands for your class and best practices in scaling your course for continued engagement shifts, regardless of course size or delivery mode.
