If you need to submit a video for a class assignment, you can either create a new video from, or upload an existing video to, your MediaSpace library. Any .mp4 video that you have created on your computer can be uploaded to your MediaSpace gallery. From there, you can share it with your instructor in different ways. Carleton supports Personal Capture for recording your videos. Regardless, other video recording software will still allow you to use MediaSpace. But, these other recording tools are not supported by Carleton.

Create and Upload Your Video

You have the following options for creating and uploading video assignments and activities:

  • Record on your computer using the Personal Capture applicationYou can record your computer screen/webcam and your voice. These videos will be automatically uploaded to the MediaSpace media server. 
  • Upload a video you already have on your computer – You can share a video you have already recorded by uploading it to MediaSpace.
  • Upload a video you already have on your mobile device using the KMS Go mobile app – You can upload a video you have already made on your mobile device and upload them to the MediaSpace media server directly from your device.
