Lecture Recording for Instructors


Lecture Recording for Instructors


Seamlessly record lectures and share them online.
Lecture capture provides a streamlined solution to capture, upload and share your lectures online. Key lectures or guest presenters can be easily recorded and posted online for students to review later or be used as a resource for future terms.  We have classrooms available with built in lecture capture devices as well as portable equipment that can be moved to different rooms.

We offer three options using our Mediasite system:

Built-in Classroom Capture

Built-in Classroom Capture

Certain classrooms are equipped with a built-in lecture capture system, which allows for automated scheduled recordings. You can pre-schedule ahead of time when you want your lectures to be captured.

Desktop and Mobile Capture

Desktop & Mobile Capture

The desktop version of the MediaSite system allows you to capture a video by using your computer or mobile device. The video is uploaded directly to the Mediasite Enterprise Video Platform, which includes a web-based editor for doing simple edits such as cropping/cutting videos and adding/deleting slides.
