Classroom Recording


Built-in Classroom Recording
There are several rooms on campus that are equipped with built-in recording equipment. IRT has also equipped several rooms on campus with DVD recording devices for recording of guest lectures, events and presentations.

Recently, IRT has added a lecture capture systems to a few rooms. These have the advantage of capturing the computer screen so that presentations are very clear. The Echo 360 system captures class lectures from every class during a term and publishes directly to Blackboard. The Minneapolis School of Law has two rooms and there may be more rooms added around campus in the future. In addition, Podcast Producer is a built in option for recording lectures and student presentations in two rooms in BEC.
