Join us via Collaborate Ultra for an hour long session on how to use Kaltura for recording, uploading, captioning, editing and sharing video and video quizzes in Canvas. We will also compare Kaltura with Camtasia to see where Camtasia’s more advanced features can add value. Because video projects can vary so greatly and post-production editing can be very time consuming, your input can help us guide you to the best solutions for your specific needs.
