Recording students for assessment

Please note: On 1 August 2019, the Kaltura CaptureSpace recorder was replaced with a new recorder called Kaltura Capture. So after 1 August the old Kaltura CaptureSpace recorder will record, but will not save new recordings. This change coincides with new procedures for staff-led recordings of student assessments, such as presentations and roleplays. Therefore, from 1 August 2019, staff-led recordings of student assessments must be done using Panopto, and these recordings must be saved into the correct folder structure, which you will need to set up before the assessment period begins. Guidance has been developed (Using Panopto to record assessment activity) which you must follow if you are recording student assessments.

The information below is therefore redundant.

Recording student presentations for assessment is a straightforward task but can seem a little daunting if it’s your first time.  As a result, the LIU has produced a guide to Recording students for assessment to support individuals, or teams, responsible for recording students for this purpose.

The guide consists of:

  • Introduction – A snapshot of UWE’s event capture policy relating to recording student assessments.
  • Single assessor – Step by step instructions for assessments being recorded by a single member of staff.
  • Multiple assessors- Step by step instructions for assessments being recorded by two or more members of staff.
  • Support and technical assistance – Helpful signposting for training in advance of the event and technical assistance during the event.


In addition to the LIU resource above, FET staff can contact the LIU directly ( if they have any queries about the process or require any further support.
