CLA IT supports instructional computing in several ways, including the following:

  • Development and maintenance of over 30 instructional and research computing labs located in several departments such as Communications, Anthropology, Sociology, English, and Patti & Rusty Rueff School of Design, Arts, and Performance. 

  • Coordinate the use of media and teaching/learning resources, including equipment checkout operations, inventory, and maintenance.

  • Work with faculty, staff, and students in using technological tools for graphic design, digital imaging, digital publishing, developing, and implementing new and emerging technologies to enhance instructional, academic, and research activities.

  • Work with faculty to assist in the exploration and development of instructional technology, including the development of multimedia technology, web-based course sites, video-conferencing, and distance learning, etc.

CLA IT has an Instructional Designer on staff to assist with any of your Instructional or Research needs. JoLene Lark has a Masters of Science in Instructional Design and Technology and has been a CLA IT staff member since 2002. JoLene can be reached at ithelp@purdue.edu

Camtasia Information

Camtasia is another tool that iTaP is providing for all Faculty/Staff & Graduate Students. Camtasia is an all-in-one screen recorder and video editor. Camtasia allows on to record your screen, add video effects, transitions, and more. The recordings made via this software can then be uploaded to Brightspace or Purdue MediaSpace. 

Camtasia is available via the CLA IT Self-Service application for Apple Computers as well as Microsoft Endpoint Manager Software Center for College supported devices.

Zoom Information

Zoom is also a useful tool for departments to be able to keep social distancing by meeting virtually. The educational version of the paid account may be requested through the request page at Purdue NW located at Purdue NW Zoom Service (Request form, guides, and FAQ). For the time being, the 40-minute time limit on free accounts is still waived although we do not know how long this benefit will continue. If you think you will need transcription or other features, you will need to register for a paid account. If you are wanting a University-funded program to use for meetings please consider using WebEx.

Kaltura Classroom (PC only)

All Windows-based computers used by faculty in most CLA Instructional Spaces and select department meeting rooms do have Kaltura Capture software installed onto them. This is the only software that is able to record directly to the Purdue MediaSpace found at https://mediaspace.itap.purdue.edu/  and once it is automatically uploaded to the MediaSpace the videos can then be posted to a module in BrightSpace.

Kaltura Capture (PC Information)

All Windows-based computers used by faculty and staff will need to have Kaltura Capture software installed onto them. This is the only software that is able to record directly to the Purdue MediaSpace found at https://mediaspace.itap.purdue.edu/  as the Kaltura Classroom application is not available for Windows-based computers found within offices or laptops that are University provided. Once uploaded to the MediaSpace the videos can then be posted to a module in BrightSpace. A version called Kaltura Classroom has been installed in all instructional lab instructor stations as well as select department meeting rooms.

Kaltura Capture (Apple Information)

All Apple computer CLA instructor stations within instructional lab spaces have Kaltura Capture software installed onto them. This is the only software that is able to record directly to the Purdue MediaSpace found at https://mediaspace.itap.purdue.edu/ as the Kaltura Classroom application is not available for Apple Computers. Once uploaded to the MediaSpace the videos can then be posted to a module in BrightSpace.

Please note for your office Apple computer this software is available for install via the self-service application. Launch self-service, log in with your career account, and type in Kaltura in the search box. It will appear in the window and you will just need to click on install.
