Typically, you will hear back from the Classroom Capture and Video Conferencing team within 1 business day. However, depending on the type of request, the demand for the service and the timing of the request, request fulfillment may take longer.
Your recordings typically appear online within an hour of the class ending. Please contact us if they are not online after one day.
Lecture and special event recordings will remain online through the semester, and students and faculty can access them through the end of finals. Upon completion of finals, requests to retain the recorded content for a longer period of time will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Call 303-735-4357 (5-HELP) or email email@example.com to submit a request.
The lecture capture equipment is not meant for recording chalkboard content at this time. For laptops, the recorder will capture anything on your computer screen, so if you are using a tablet computer, the recorder will capture your annotations.
Please note the frame rate on the recordings is two frames per second, so students will not see the computer image on the recording the same way they do in class.
At the end of the semester, recordings are taken offline and moved to archival storage. If you need to access the recordings after the semester is over, please call 303-735-4357 (5-HELP) or email firstname.lastname@example.org to submit a request. These requests are handled on a case-by-case basis.
Contact the IT Service Center with additional questions. A member of Classroom Capture and Video Conferencing team will contact you to provide more information and determine how this service can be appropriately utilized.
The service can provide students with an additional resource to enhance their education and learning process by viewing lectures after they occur. This service can assist with student retention.
Recorders have been installed in several OIT-supported lecture halls. They are:
The equipment in the supported lecture halls can be pre-scheduled to automatically start and stop recording, with the option for the presenters to pause their own recordings using the touch panel controller. After the lecture is recorded, students can view presentations online using any PC or Mac. Student can control playback and focus on the content most important to them.
Viewers will need download the latest version of Microsoft's Silverlight Player in order to access the online content.
OIT has partnered with Sonic Foundry and deployed their Mediasite products and services to enable Classroom Capture. Mediasite recorders capture, encode and synchronize content from your computer, and work especially well with presentation software such as PowerPoint. Additionally, an OIT-managed server manages the content, recorders and cameras.
Any faculty member can (and is encouraged to) use this service to complement the in-class lecture experience for students.
