Tech Reminders for Recording Lectures and Job Talks

Posted October 4th, 2018 at 5:00 pm.

It’s that time of year again, when academic departments are hosting candidates and organizing job talks. Bryn Mawr College subscribes to a lecture capture system called Tegrity, which makes it easy for lecture hosts to record a talk and share links to the recording with people who can’t attend in person. Below are reminders about how to get started:

  • Schedule the talk in a room that is already set up for lecture capture. These will have “Lecture Capture Camera” listed in the room description on the Technology Enabled Classrooms pages of the LITS website. Most lecture-style rooms on campus are set up for lecture capture. Most seminar-style rooms are not. If you have any questions, please contact Multimedia (x7449 or multimedia@brynmawr.edu).
  • The lecture capture system is designed to be self-service. To use it, you simply log into the podium computer in lecture-capture classroom, launch the Tegrity software, and remember to start and stop your recording! If this is your first time recording or you need a refresher, we’re happy to help: see our step-by-step instructions for Recording a Lecture Classroom or a request a consultation.
  • Tegrity is integrated with Moodle:
    • You will need to have a Teacher role in a Moodle course (any Moodle course) to record a lecture using Tegrity. If you do not have a Teacher role already, please e-mail help@brynmawr.edu in advance to request that we set one up for you.
    • We recommend recording job talks and similar non-course-related lectures to your Sandbox course (it will be at the bottom of the list of your Tegrity courses), which is visible only to you. Videos recorded to any other course site will be visible to anyone enrolled in that course.
    • For instructions on how to give people others access to recordings in your Sandbox, see Sharing Tegrity Recordings Outside of Moodle.
