Tegrity Lecture Capture

Tegrity lecture capture technology allows you to record lecture content from class, your office, or a personal device, and put that content online for your students to access at any time. With the appropriate equipment, Tegrity can record your computer screen, audio, and video lecture elements. But it doesn't just put that content online, it also indexes topics for easy navigation during playback, captures words on the screen so that students can search for terms in your presentations, and extracts URLs so that students can easily find web resources that you referenced during class. In addition to all this, Tegrity puts the lecture inside a custom player that allows students to control the playback speed, download the lecture, add bookmarks and notes (which can be exported), send inquiries directly to the instructor, and more. All of these features make it a great tool for both instructors and students.
