Classroom Lecture Capture - Live and Archived Content

Classroom lecture capture enables you to record or stream a class lecture live over the Internet through a secure interface viewable only by students registered for your course. Classroom lecture capture enables your distance education students to view the exact same lecture given to your face-to-face students either live or when it's convenient to them. Classroom lecture capture can also be used to provide your face-to-face students access to each lecture given throughout the semester, which they can then review come exam time potentially improving student GPAs. Students enjoy having access to recorded lectures and when surveyed, they ask for more classroom lecture capture usage campus wide.
