Tegrity Overview

Posted September 12th, 2016 at 2:18 pm.

Tegrity, Bryn Mawr’s lecture capture system, enables instructors to quickly record classes or lectures and post the recordings for students to review. Instructors simply log in to Tegrity on a computer to start and stop the recording, and Tegrity does the rest. Tegrity can simultaneous record a screencast (e.g., of slides presented on computer and/or projected during a talk), audio, and (optionally) video. If a recording has a screencast and video they appear side-by-side in the view window.

To learn more about Tegrity’s features, check out the instructor (recorder) overview and student (viewer) overview.

Where to record:

  • Many lecture-style classrooms are equipped to record Tegrity. To find one, go to the Technology Enhanced Classrooms webpage, find your building, and look for “lecture capture” in the listing.
  • With sufficient notice, Multimedia Services can set up other classrooms for recording. Request this when you reserve the room under “A/V Notes” on the Details tab in Virtual EMS, or contact Multimedia directly.
  • You can also record from any computer with a high-speed internet connection, webcam, and microphone.

Help for recorders:

  • Have a pre-existing video that you want to stream to students? Upload a video to Tegrity: PC or Mac.
  • Recordings should upload to the network and show up automatically. When they don’t, an error message will appear — here’s what those messages mean, and how to fix the problem: troubleshooting recording status messages.
  • If you have any recordings you no longer wish to make visible to your students, you can hide (unpublish) a recording.

Help for viewers:

  • If you’re having playback issues, you can run diagnostics to see whether your computer meets Tegrity’s system requirements and whether you need to update anything.
  • If you are having difficulty getting videos to play you can also use this playback troubleshooting guide to attempt to solve your problem.
