Uses for Lecture Capture

Our systems capture audio, video and presentation materials and makes the content available for live broadcasting or on-demand access over the Web. Below are some of the innovative ways faculty, students, and staff are using them.

Some uses for Teaching and Learning:

  • Capture special events or speakers;
  • Create supplemental resources to support learning;
  • Record student presentations & publish to Cougar Courses;
  • Create content for a hybrid course;
  • Add dynamic content to fully online course;
