This service provides students with an additional resource to enhance their learning and retention of material. The service is popular with students, especially in preparing for exams.
The Distance Learning Services team will typically contact you within 1 business day of submitting your request. In some cases, especially depending on demand, 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 setup is not meant for recording chalkboard content. For laptops, the recorder will capture anything on your computer screen. 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. Videos will appear choppy. When possible, consider sharing links to online videos for your students to review later.
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 the Distance Learning Services team will contact you to provide more information to help you decide if the service will meet your needs.
The following classrooms are equipped for classroom capture:
Recorders in the supported lecture halls can be scheduled to automatically record lectures and presentations. The system will automatically start and stop recordings, with the option for the presenters to pause their own recordings using the room’s touch panel controller. After the lecture has uploaded, students can view recordings online using computers and some mobile devices. Students can control playback and navigate to the content most important to them.
Viewers will need to install and enable the latest version of Microsoft's Silverlight Player in order to view recordings.
OIT uses Sonic Foundry’s Mediasite products and services to enable Classroom Capture. Mediasite recorders capture, encode and synchronize content from a presenter’s computer.
Any faculty member can (and is encouraged to) request this service in supported spaces to complement the in-class lecture experience for students. Students may not request class recordings.
