Tegrity Video Recording FAQ


What is Tegrity?

Tegrity is the course capture system used at W&L. It is a recording system that allows professors to record classroom content and share it with students digitally. Tegrity records the computer screen of the computer using it, audio from the classroom, and in some cases a live video feed from the classroom. ITS survey results consistently reveal that students rank Tegrity course capture as one of the top learning resources available on campus.

How do I access it?

Tegrity recordings are accessible via Sakai. Use your W&L network credentials to log in at http://sakai.wlu.edu and navigate to a course with a Tegrity link tool. Click on the link and a popup will open containing the class recordings.

What classrooms have Tegrity enabled?

Please refer to the "Classroom Spaces" link available at the Registrar website: http://www.wlu.edu/university-registrar/our-services/course-scheduling-and-classrooms. Rooms with Tegrity currently enabled will indicate this in the "Lecture Capture" row. Rooms are listed as "audio only" if they only capture room audio and the computer screen, or "video" if they capture room audio, computer screen, and live video feed of the instructor.

What if I am not in a Tegrity enabled classroom?

Faculty may request that Tegrity be installed in any classroom on campus. Such installations are made on a term-by-term basis as resources permit. In addition, the Tegrity recorder can be installed on any computer, enabling recordings to be made for class from home or office.

How long are my Tegrity recordings retained by ITS?

Retention guidelines permit all Tegrity recordings to remain in the system for two years plus one term to enable past course recordings to be used in a current or future term. Faculty will be notified before recordings are removed, and recordings can be retained longer or stored as a video archive upon request.

How do I find additional help or support?
