Tegrity Recording Basics: Windows

What is Tegrity?

Tegrity is a tool that allows site members to create or view recordings of class lectures, student presentations, or other course materials. It records your computer screen, audio, and a video input if desired. These components are then uploaded to the Tegrity server and encoded for viewing through WISE.

  9. In the Tegrity server window where you started the recording, you can see your newest recording at the top of the list. The Tegrity server takes time to process the video after it has finished (the longer the recording the longer it takes in post-processing). The recording is still listed, but grayed out with the status "Available Soon."
    Use - Step 9

  10. Once the processing is compete the video title will change to black and the status column will display a blank. Anyone with access to the WISE site can watch the video. Additionally, you can check the box beside the video and use the "Choose an Action..." menu to make other changes to the video and its settings.
