What is Lecture Capture?

Lecture capture refers to the process of recording a lecture that the instructor will place on the Web for students to watch online. This practice can be used in both face-to-face courses and, obviously, in fully online classes. For ideas on how to use lecture capture to engage your learners, please see our companion document.

Enterprise Tools: 

These tools are fully supported. Contact the IT Solutions Center at 507.389.6654 for assistance.

  • Camtasia Relay- Camtasia Relay is a software-based solution that allows faculty to record lectures from their personal computers. You will need your own microphone and, if you wish, webcam. Presentations are published to Kaltura, and an email is sent to the instructor, which then can be embedded into D2L or other systems. 
  • Classroom-based Lecture Capture- In-class lecture capture can provide a useful way for instructors to record their lectures as they deliver them live for their students. The lectures can be used as a review or study guide for later assessments or, at the instructor's discretion, for learners who were absent from class.
  • HD Recording Studio- The HD recording studio is a high-quality recording studio located in the Faculty Resource Center in the basement of Memorial Library. The studio features professional quality lighting, studio-quality audio, and HD video of the instructor, as well as presentation capture. View a sample lecture.
