Q. How can I make an audio podcast or screen recording, and submit this to NILE?


Students can make screen and audio recordings within NILE using the software 'Kaltura CaptureSpace'.

These can easily be added to an assignment, using the 'Write a submission' option within a standard assignment. (these options are not available for Turnitin assignments)

To record a file using Kaltura CaptureSpace, you will need access the Mediaspace site video.northampton.ac.uk and use of a desktop PC or Mac with either a web-cam, or a microphone. (Laptops are available for loan in the library)
