About the Lecture Capture System
- Provides automated recording of classroom lectures and events, and publishing to the web or as podcast downloads.
- Recordings contain video, audio, and projected content (such as slides).
- College of Engineering faculty and staff may request to use the system in any equipped classroom at no direct cost.
The College of Engineering Lecture Capture System is the most automated and easy to use option for recording most classroom courses and events. Video and audio of the instructor is recorded, along with any slides or other content being projected. It is a good solution for recording presentations as they are given to groups and for lectures where the content shown on the projector is the most important visual element of the presentation.
Recordings can be scheduled ahead of time, or made on an impromptu basis. Recordings made with this system can be viewed on the web or as podcast downloads. Most of the process is fully-automated, and a web-based interface is provided to the instructor for management of the recordings.
The Lecture Capture System is built into nearly half of the College of Engineering centrally-scheduled classrooms, and is also available in several other shared facilities and recording studios. A list of rooms with recording capability can be found in our Availability section.
Note that the system is most often used for recording supplemental resource for on-campus students. If you are producing recordings that are intended for promotional, distance learning, or other outward-facing uses, you may want to work with a production group such as InterPro or Michigan Productions for a higher level of production support.
