DLC Spring 2020 Class Projects/Robert Casselman
This project is designed to help students within Professor Casselman's course to record reflections on assigned readings where you will be asked to analyze and apply concepts and theories in the course and pose questions from the concepts you are reading about. In this resource, you will learn how to install and use the tool you will be using to record, edit, and share your reflections. The tool you will be using is called Kaltura Capture and for this project, you will be posting these reflections to Assignment Submission Folder found in your D2L BrightSpace course. The steps involved to complete your recording with Kaltura Capture are provided below.
