Techsmith Knowmia (formerly Relay) is OCAD U’s own private video capture and sharing service that integrates with Canvas. Need to demonstrate a studio practice, explain how to use software, document a lecture or get your students to share video? Techsmith Knowmia (formerly Relay) is the answer.
TechSmith offers many products that can share content directly to your Knowmia Library. Anything in your library can be shared on Canvas.

Capture is the quickest way to capture your recording and upload to Knowmia. Download and launch Capture using the Launch Capture button in your Knowmia Library or in Canvas. It's as easy as clicking record, stop, and submit. Learn how to use Capture at Techsmith.com.
Upload almost any media file to your Knowmia Library. Your Knowmia Library has tools to help you add media you already have and to keep everything organized. Learn how to keep your list of videos neat and tidy.
