How to Add a Webcam Recording to Moodle

Kaltura allows you to upload webcam recordings on devices with a functioning webcam. Instructors have two choices of how webcam recordings will be displayed in Moodle; either directly on the course homepage or on a separate page.

If you would like the webcam recording to display directly on your course homepage, add the video in through a Label.

If you would not like the video to display directly on your course homepage, but instead have students click off of the main course homepage to view it, add the video through a page.

If you are a student submitting a webcam recording as an assignment in Moodle, go directly to Step 3. Please note students may only submit webcam recordings as assignments or in forums.

1.) Enter your Moodle course and click 'Add an activity or resource' in the topic of where you would like the webcam recording to display
