Preventing Downloads of Tegrity Recordings

Posted October 11th, 2018 at 7:47 pm.

By default, anyone with a Student role in a Moodle course site can watch Tegrity recordings for the course in several ways:

  • Watch in a web browser over a Internet connection
  • Stream video to a Tegrity app on their mobile device
  • Download the recordings and audio and video podcasts versions of the recordings to view offline

Downloads are often useful in a academic course context as they enable students to view content at times and in places where they do not have Internet access. The full version of the Tegrity recording contains a self-executable version of the Tegrity playback software and can only be viewed within that software. The audio and video podcast versions can be played in most audio and video players.

If downloading is inappropriate for a particular Moodle course, anyone with a Teacher role in that course can disable it:

  1. Log in to Moodle and navigate to that course.
  2. Click the Tegrity Campus link inside the McGrawHill-AAIRS block.
  3. Click the Course Tasks drop-down menu, and choose Course Settings.
  4. Uncheck the following:
    • Allow students to download recordings
    • Enable MP3 Podcast
    • Enable Video Podcast
  5. Click OK.
