Echo360 is the School of Nursing’s standard lecture capture platform.

If you would like to have your lecture recorded during your normal class time, please call Nursing IT at 734-764-6300 to schedule a lecture capture, or email us at nursing-help@umich.edu with your course number and class times.

Kaltura Capture

Kaltura Capture is a standard personal recording which is already integrated into Canvas. Faculty can use Kaltura Capture to record videos (including Voice of PowerPoint), and screen captures using their laptops and/or desktop computers equipped with a web camera. Kaltura Capture is fully supported by both ITS and Nursing IT, and is licensed for immediate use by all University faculty, students, and staff.
