How to Record Screen & Webcam Together

NOTE: During spring 2019 Tufts is replacing CaptureSpace Lite with Kaltura's new capture tool, Kaltura Capture.  Both tools will be available until May 30, 2019.  Starting June 1, 2019, only Kaltura Capture will be available.

We encourage you to start capturing video with Kaltura Captura (instead of CaptureSpace Lite) as soon as is convenient.

To get started, visit these user guides for Kaltura Capture.

Feel free to contact for assistance with lecture capture.

Launch CaptureSpace Lite

Set or confirm your recording SETTINGS in the CaptureSpace Lite Desktop Recorder Panel

Click the RECORD tab

Prepare yourself or your subject for recording

  • Adjust the lighting
  • If a light source (windows, lamps, light fixtures) is behind the subject, move or pivot your subject, or compensate with additional lighting in front
  • De-clutter the background

Prepare your screen for recording

Open the app or window you wish to record, close unneeded apps and windows

Click the SCREEN & WEBCAM button

To capture a select area of the screen, choose "Select Area"

Note: if during recording you will use CaptureSpace Lite drawing tools, recording a select area makes it easier to hide the drawing tool panel during recording.

Click the SELECT AREA button at the bottom of the desktop recorder panel

Use the cursor to select an area of the screen

The screen will darken, and your cursor will turn to crosshairs.  Click and drag the cursor to select the portion of the screen you wish to record.  As soon as you release the mouse button, the countdown to recording will begin.

Countdown to recording

You'll see a 5-second countdown before recording begins.

Note: Don't worry if your onscreen activity starts several seconds after the countdown finishes. You can trim unwanted footage later.

Recording begins
