Kaltura Classroom is software that allows you to easily record presentations that occur in a classroom. It is installed on most USU classroom computers and can record a classroom's camera feed, microphone, and computer desktop. (See and filter by "Lecture Capture (Kaltura)" to see which classrooms are equipped with Kaltura Classroom.)
