Faculty may find it necessary to give lectures remotely during campus closures. There are two main ways to deliver remote lectures: asynchronously recording a lecture through Zoom or Kaltura Capture (pre-recorded lecture) or a synchronous (real-time) remote lecture given through Zoom.
Whatever tool you choose and whether live or pre-recorded, there are two steps to sharing videos with students.
Synchronous (Real-Time) Lecture: Instructors may deliver synchronous lectures in Zoom and record their Zoom meeting to share with students through Canvas.
Asynchronous (Pre-Recorded) Lecture: A number of tools are available for recording videos that can be shared in Canvas. Kaltura Capture is the OSU-supported media platform for enhanced recordings. Zoom is also an option for recording asynchronous lectures.
Any video created through Zoom or Kaltura Capture is automatically uploaded, after processing, into My Media in Canvas and is easily shared from there with students.
Once videos are uploaded into My Media, those videos can be shared with students in Canvas - through announcements, pages, assignments, quizzes, or discussions.
