Media Technology Services offers a wide variety of options to capture your content for later playback. We offer the following methods of lecture capture:
NOTE: Please make sure to contact us at least 48 hours in advance to ensure the best chance of your lecture being captured.
Media Technology Services offers the option to record your lecture, student presentations, guest lecturer, and more. After recording your lecture, you have the option to recieve the content by DVD, video file, and/or having it streamed from our Mediasite server. We also offer the ability to edit the presentation and add in any content that might need to be added (powerpoint slides, graphs, etc.) after the fact.
The option to pre-record and create your content using Camtasia Studio is also available. We will train you on how to use the software so that you are able to record your voice over what you are doing on your computer screen. This works well for demonstrating how to use a piece of software to your audience. After recording your content, you will be able to output it to a DVD, video file, or host it online for later playback.
We offer the ability to check out an MP3 recorder so that you may capture the audio portion of your lecture and convert it into an MP3. This allows easy playback by students using an MP3 player, iPod, or many other popular audio devices.
If your lecture requires input of multiple sources such as a document camera, laptop, or smartboard we have the option of recording it in one of our distance education rooms using Mediasite. These recordings are ideal if you want to record a specific lecture that is complex and requires the use of different technologies. The room availability is very limited and requires booking far in advance.
We also support the distance education recordings for the Collaborative Engineering Program as well as the Collaborative Language Program.
