Using InSpace's Session Recording Feature and Sharing Your Recordings from Moodle

Learn how to start, pause, and stop an InSpace recording, manage your recordings, and handle unstable Internet connections during recording.

    InSpace's whole session recording feature allows hosts and co-hosts to record the entire session from their point of view as they move through the space.

    Start an InSpace recording:

    1. Start an InSpace session. Recording is available in single spaces, the Auditorium, and the Experience Hub. 
    2. Click the record button on the host toolbar on the left-hand side.
    3. A notification will appear, prompting the host to select the InSpace browser tab to record. Hosts can also choose to create a transcript of their video recording in this window.
    4. A browser popup appears. Users should select the browser tab labeled 'Select this for recording'. This is necessary because it tells the web browser which tab to "share" with the InSpace recording feature.
    5. After clicking 'Share', all participants will see a notification that the recording has begun.

    While recording a session:

    • Everything the host hears and sees will be recorded, with the ability to Pause and Resume the recording.
    • Multiple hosts can record simultaneously during a session.
    • Hosts can record in all room configurations (Discussion Room, Presentation Room, Breakout Rooms, No Rooms) and can change the layout anytime during the recording session.
      • Note: In Firefox, recording is supported only in the discussion and presentation rooms.

    Stop an InSpace recording:

    1. Click the recording button again in the host menu. 
    2. In the popup window, press the square 'stop' button. 
    3. A new popup will appear. Rename the recording if needed, then select 'Stop and save'.
    4. Once the recording ends, a notification on your screen indicates that the recording has been saved to the Moodle LMS. Videos take approximately 1 hour to process before they are available for viewing and downloading.

    Manage InSpace recordings:

    1. To manage InSpace recordings, open the Moodle LMS InSpace portal, select the session (Classroom, Student Space, or Office), then click the video 'Recordings' icon. 
    2. This will display your recorded videos and any recordings shared with you. 
    3. You can download and share any video on your dashboard, and you can edit or delete videos you have created.

    Recording on an unstable Internet connection: 

    Hosts can download the recording right after finishing the recording.

    • If a host’s Internet network quality is unstable while recording, we’ve implemented improvements to preserve their recording data and quality.
      • After finishing the recording, hosts will receive a notification that they need to keep their InSpace page open so the saving process finishes.
      • If a host doesn't keep their page open while the recording saves, their recording may experience some quality issues due to their poor network quality.
      • The saving process will continue if a host closes their InSpace tab but later reopens it.
