Lecture Capture

Service Description

CIS uses the Mediasite lecture capture system to record audio and video of the speaker as well as screen capture of whatever is projected to the display. The recordings are distributed through our course management system, Sakai, unless otherwise requested. We have 6 classrooms in the Shanahan Center that are set up to automatically do lecture capture: Shanahan 1430 (Lecture Hall), Shanahan B480 (Recital Hall), B460, 2450, 2454, and 2460. Lecture capture is also now available in all three Galileo Auditoria (Pryne, McAlister and Edwards). We also have a mobile recorder that can be used to record individual classes or events in other rooms. Lecture capture can also be used to record candidate talks, seminars, and other events.

All recordings will remain on Mediasite’s servers until the end of the semester, when they will then be moved into USS’s video archive on Google Drive. At this point, you won’t be able to view the recorded videos without requesting a new video link from USS. Upon request, recordings can also be left on Mediasite for one additional semester. If you need a video hosted for more than two semesters, USS can work with you to preemptively transfer your video from Mediasite to Google Drive so that you can update your video links with no loss of hosting time.

Other features of Mediasite lecture capture include the ability to embed questions in a recording, quickly locate specific sections of a recording by searching text on slides, and a flexible player layout.

Availability

Available to faculty and staff at HMC. Students who require lecture capture for academic accommodations can reach out to the ADA/Title IX coordinator.

How to Access the Service

Faculty can request lecture capture recording by using our AV Request Form or by sending an email to helpdesk@hmc.edu. CIS can schedule automated recording of every class session or individual class meetings. Staff can also request lecture capture recording of training sessions or other events. The recordings are automatically uploaded to the Mediasite hosted site and can be distributed either through a public URL or through a link in a Sakai site.

Faculty who are requesting lecture capture recording of every class session should coordinate with the Registrar to make sure their class is scheduled to meet in one of our lecture capture-ready classrooms (Galileo Pryne, Galileo McAlister, Galileo Edwards, Shanahan 1430 (Lecture Hall), Shanahan B480 (Recital Hall), B460, 2450, 2454, and 2460).

While students cannot directly request lecture capture from CIS, students who require lecture capture for academic accommodations can reach out to the ADA/Title IX coordinator.
