Tegrity can record audio, video and your computer screen image (such as a PowerPoint presentation) and then create a high-quality, interactive video for students to review at a later time. It allows instructors to record easily lectures in class as they are given or in their offices to be posted online as part of a hybrid or online class. Tegrity will be available to UW Bothell faculty starting Winter quarter.
Tegrity can be used to:
- Record in-class lectures as you give them, including audio from a microphone, video from a webcam, the classroom projector image and a document camera image all at once (if desired), so that students can return to the lecture later to study and review the content.
- Record lectures (with the same equipment listed above) in the instructor’s office to be posted online in the course Web site as part of a hybrid or online course
Although Tegrity is currently only available to the “instructors of record” in the UW Course Time Schedule, there are plans to open the system to the wider UW community, so that all staff, faculty and students can use it as a technology for formal and informal trainings and presentations. We will announce this on this blog when it become available in this way.
Look for more information on the Learning Technologies website in the weeks to come.
