Kaltura is a cloud-based media capture, storage and hosting application.  This application is integrated with Husky CT, the University’s learning management system, and provides instructors with the capability to integrate videos into their courses as well as add a quiz to the video.  In addition, students can create and upload videos for homework assignments.

Lightboard Recording Studio

The lightboard is one of our lecture recording tools in a recording studio that allows instructors to face the camera while also writing on a transparent surface. By using glass instead of a whiteboard or Smartboard the instructor can interact with the content in new ways. It engages and captures students’ attention with eye contact and gestures. It’s ideal for STEM fields but appropriate for any discipline.
