*Note: It is very important that you want for submission process to complete. Project will not be recoverable if it is interrupted during this process. Longer presentations take more time.

Please follow these rules for the naming convention.

If they are not followed, your presentation may not be processed to the correct location or be delayed and student's presentations may not get processed at all.

In the title section of the recorder, please use the following naming format:


 Example: MKTG448_schuster_Syllabus

If you are having students submit Relay presentations please email Studio Services so a catalog page can be setup.

Please direct the students to Relay Page and follow the instructions for students.

Once a student submits their recording, only the instructor will get the verification email, not the student. Studio services will then put the processed presentations in the proper catalog.
