Express Capture is an alternative option to Kaltura Capture and will result in a much smaller file size which may be beneficial for those with an unreliable internet connection. Unlike Kaltura Capture, Express Capture does not require the installation of any software on your computer.

Using Express Capture, you can record your voice, webcam and screen. You can then upload the video to My Media and insert it within your Learn.UQ course.
