When classes canceled, UD Capture can make up for lost time
7:41 a.m., Feb. 17, 2014--Each semester, students in hundreds of University of Delaware courses appreciate UD Capture's value to "Record. Review. Retain."
When classes are canceled due to snow and ice, several faculty members have found that UD Capture is a good way to recoup lost time.
Tea with the provost
Some faculty members have found that their UD Capture recordings from previous semesters made a good substitute for a canceled class session. By taking advantage of UD Capture's options for duplicating recordings or for opening previous semesters’ archives, faculty can easily request that a previous recording be made available to current students.
Other faculty members have created new recordings in one of the two self-service recording studios in the Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Lab (ISE Lab) and Gore Hall to replace a canceled class. Faculty can schedule their studio time and initiate their own recordings
Some faculty have used the UD Capture Video Dropbox service to submit recordings they have produced themselves with software like Camtasia or PowerPoint for inclusion in a course’s UD Capture directory.
Faculty interested in any of these options can
- Schedule a session in the Gore 309 or ISE 208 self-service UD Capture studios.
- Request UD Capture recording for a course this semester.
- Contact IT Academic Technology Services to release a previous semester’s recordings to current students or to request more information about UD Capture by calling 302-831-0640 or by using this form.
