Lecture Capture Resources

These are the resources for the lecture capture presentation at College of the Redwoods. At CR we can help instructors with video taping lectures and consult with them on how to use cameras and recording equipment in the classroom. We also have close captioning of video available through a grant through-out the California community college system.

How are instructors using lecture capture and why?


  • Youtube - Instructors can create their own channels. These videos are now being close-captioned.
  • iTunes U - Most students tend to watch educational content from iTunes U on their computer.
  • Edustream - This is an educators version of YouTube; gives educators more control over content.

Software & Local Server

  • Articulate - Builds interactive content from Powerpoint. Preserves animations. $$$
  • Lecshare - Builds interactive content and ensures ADA compliance. $


Enterprise-Wide Solutions

  • Elluminate - Webinar/synchronous meeting software. CCC Confer has a state-wide license for Elluminate.
  • Matterhorn is an open source alternative. We will need to explore this one closely. A lot will depend on how much in-house support we can afford to provide - a common issue with open source solutions.
  • Echo360 - This is an appliance based solution. A blade server in every classroom. $$$
  • Tegrity - This is a "cloud"-based solution. They have a showcase of example recorded lectures. $$

  1. I must say that you should check you facts before posting comments about a solution. You say "echo360 is a hardware based solution and requires a Blade Server in every classroom"..
    The Echo System offers THREE levels of capture and can be deployed with NO ENCODING HARDWARE on the front end. please check your facts before putting out your info.
