Changes to Kaltura

Students can no longer record Kaltura videos directly from the web camera on the computer.  This functionality has been removed by UNM Learn. Student video assignments can be recorded using QuickTime or their phone and then uploaded to Learn.  Alternatively, you can configure your UNM Learn course to use the Capture Space Lite tool that is available as a replacement for Kaltura recording.  Find more information about Capture Space Lite and how to use it at


The LLC has the Capture Space Lite plug-in installed on all computers. Training on recording and editing video is available at
