Video tools for teaching

Decide which tool you will use to make your recording. The University supported systems that will provide auto-generated transcripts are Echo360, Zoom, and Microsoft Teams (with Microsoft Stream).

There are many other tools that can be used to create recordings that will generate auto-transcripts. Staff are free to use these tools to generate accessible resources though support will be more limited.

The University’s Learning Innovation Support Unit recommend you:

  • Edit your video with Camtasia.
  • Upload and store it using either Kaltura or Echo360. Use Kaltura or Echo360 to produce transcripts.
  • Share your video from Kaltura or Echo360 in Moodle rather than uploading to Moodle.

Guides

Echo360

Echo360 is available in many lecture theatres and can be used on a personal device. Auto-generated transcripts are generated for any recording that is published to a class.

Microsoft Stream and Teams


Microsoft Stream

A service that lets you upload, view, and share videos across the University of Glasgow.

You can share recordings of classes, meetings, presentations, training sessions, or other videos. You can share videos individually, or to a chosen group or channel for members to have access to.

Recordings in Microsoft Stream can not be longer than 15 minutes. You can share and upload longer videos created using other tools to Stream. 

Microsoft Teams

Recordings in Microsoft Teams automatically save to Stream. You can use Teams to host live meetings, classes and seminars.

 

Kaltura

Kaltura is the centrally supported video system that allows you to embed video into Moodle courses.

Kaltura is designed to allow you to capture, host and share video-based content. You can monitor how many views each video is getting, and which areas of your content is getting the most engagement. Kaltura also allows you to create in-video quizzes and ‘lean forward’ engaging content via the use of interactive video.
