The UNBC Centre for Teaching, Learning, and Technology (CTLT) supports the design, development and deployment of innovative teaching practices at UNBC.

The CTLT is a hub of innovation and creativity, and is here to help you employ technologies supporting rich learning experiences for your students.  We do this by supporting faculty and staff with new learning technologies, and with curriculum and instructional design

The CTLT helps you think creatively and push the boundaries using new tools and resources so that you can get the most impact from your teaching.  This guide provides short tutorials and tipsheets for educational technologies and services offered at UNBC. provides instructors with tools for: creation and delivery of online content, communication and collaboration methods, online assessments, and secure assignment collection, and secure gradebook and feedback reporting. also provides integrated services such as multimedia streaming, and web-conferencing.


UNBC uses a media streaming platform for instructors and students to share audio and video content.  The platform is called Kaltura and has the ability to to upload, publish, and search videos, embed video directly in a course (that can be reused across multiple courses), and create shortened clips from existing video content.

The platform is integrated with and provides ease of use handling media files of all types and sizes.  This integration also offers the ability for instructors to lecture capture classes.  Lecture capture is an umbrella term describing any technology that allows instructors to record what happens in their classrooms and make it available digitally. In its simplest form, lecture capture might be an audio recording made with an iPod; alternatively, the term might refer to a software capture program that records cursor movement, typing, or other on-screen activity. Lecture capture systems offer three important benefits: an alternative when students miss class; an opportunity for content review; and content for online course development. Lecture capture enhances and extends existing instructional activities, whether in face-to-face, fully online, or blended learning environments.
