Published on: Author: Nancy O'Laughlin

UD Capture Archive sampleUD Capture is an automatic classroom capture system that records traditional classroom meetings for online use. IT Academic Technology Services has put into place a seamless process with no extra setup or new equipment to learn. Behind the scenes, the capture appliances will automatically record what shows up on the projector in the room as well as discussions in class, according to your class schedule. Once your class session is over, a link to your recording is available for use within 15 minutes.

After making your first recording, you will receive a URL to a UD Capture Archive page that will list each of your recorded sessions throughout the semester.

To view a recording, click the link for the dated lecture. An expanded view appears with a “View this recording” link, which will take you to the video.


So how do your students get access in Sakai? You can put the link to the archived sessions in the content area of your Home page, follow the step-by-step instructions at the ATS site’s FAQs titled How can I add a link in Sakai for my UD Capture recordings?
