Free and easy recording tool in KTH Play and Canvas

In KTH Play, there is a free recording program called Kaltura Capture, which can also be used via "Video Recordings" in Canvas if it is visible in the course menu. Recording with Kaltura Capture is very easy and when the recording is complete, you can quickly upload the video to KTH Play.
