Teaching with Video - Kaltura Page On-Campus Video Creation at the TLC
Folder Getting started with video creation

Using video is a great way to liven up your asynchronous online course and reduce what can often be a very text-heavy experience for students. In general practice, short instructional videos are better than long ones: there’s a reason TED talks are rarely longer than 18 minutes!

If you need assistance or access to video recording equipment the Teaching and Learning Centre offers a purpose-built space for you to record and edit demo-videos, add voice-overs or produce other content on campus.

Contact us at to book an appointment.

Below you will find guides and information on how to record, capture and edit videos.

Note: Many of the links below direct you to LinkedIn Learning resources which are available through Emily Carr’s Library. For the best experience, log in to LinkedIn Learning before clicking these links.

Planning and Recording Video

You can record and create videos using a variety of applications or devices, including simple videos shot using your phone or tablet. This LinkedIn Learning video guide can help you get started. 

Our fabulous Film and Screen Arts Techs have created a QuickSheet to help you make the best videos you can until such time as we have access to campus and our great team!

Capturing Software

To capture your screen or webcam there are many free applications to choose from:

Loom is a good option that is easy to use. You can choose to record your screen and/or a camera and audio source. The Pro Plan is free for teachers and students.

Kaltura Capture has the same basic functionality as Loom. You can choose to record your screen or any connected video or audio device, but with the benefit of uploading recordings directly to My Media/Kaltura. For a complete collection of video-guides using Kaltura Capture click here.

Quicktime also allows you to create videos. This LinkedIn Learning video quickly explains how to use QuickTime to record your screen, audio and video.

OBS is a free and more advanced capture software with more options to customize your recordings, layering and switching sources on the fly. Download it here and find step by step instructions here.

If you want to record voice-over while you move through presentation slides, you can use a built-in recording function within PowerPoint or Apple Keynote as these short LinkedIn Learning videos explains: PowerPoint, Apple Keynote

Editing Videos

Video editing is not always necessary for short demos or lectures, but for those who want to edit longer videos here is a short list of recommended and free video editors with links to user-guides.

Kaltura Editor: If your clip is uploaded to My Media and you just need to trim the start and end of your clip, you can use the Kaltura in-browser editor. It's good for rudimentary edits, but it is not recommendedfor bigger editing jobs.

Adobe Premiere Rush has been recommended by several faculty members for those that don’t have much editing experience. It's a simplified version of Adobe Premiere Pro and available through our Adobe Creative Cloud licence. User guides can be found here.

Adobe Premiere Pro is an excellent professional editing software that comes included in our Adobe Creative cloud. User guides can be found here.

iMovie is a fairly simple program that comes pre-installed on all Mac computers. User guides can be found here.
