Classroom Recording

Health Sciences Classroom Services provides classroom recordings via the U's centrally provided Kaltura Mediaspace system. It allows course content to appear in Canvas pages for enrolled students. It also provides public links for departmental, non-course content that needs to be shared to a broader audience.

All faculty and staff can request a Mediaspace recording and/or livestream as long as their Mediaspace profiles are initiated. Log into to initiate your profile.

Contact our service coordinator V. Paul V. at with any questions.


Astra Event Request Form Technology Portion

Upon requesting a room via the Astra Event Request page and selecting Twin Cities - AHC Classroom Services, checkmark the Classroom Recording box and provide the Internet ID of who should be the recording owner. We will process your request when your room reservation is confirmed.

Health Sciences Classroom Services cannot record or broadcast any HIPAA or PHI content. Room users are required to agree to doing their part to prevent any inadvertent HIPAA violations.

Recordings and livestreams will show a video from the room's camera(s), audio from the mics, and any content that is projected to the display system.

Viewers of recordings can select whether video or content is the main focus. Livestream viewers will see a picture-in-picture composite video and content.

Course content can be automatically captured in a classroom and published to the Canvas site. The instructor just has to start and end their lecture on time.

With proper setup, recordings can appear in the Canvas course site's Media Gallery, or the instructor/designer can embed recordings on Canvas course pages.
