New for fall 2008 is Tegrity, an online teaching tool available to faculty and used through WebCT to record, store and index online lectures, capturing all materials displayed on a computer screen. Recordings can include audio/video clips, web-cam images, PowerPoint presentations, document camera scans, annotations on a whiteboard, and display websites or links at selected points in the lecture. Lectures can be recorded from your desk or in an auditorium. The auditoriums have been wired to pick up student questions and instructors are free to move about the lecture hall while still being recorded (although he/she may get out of web-cam range). Once the recording has been made it will be uploaded to WebCT, where all the students in a class can access it throughout the length of the course. All Tegrity recordings are also automatically indexed, allowing for keyword searches which helps make the recordings an effective review tool. While Tegrity is not designed to replace synchronous web-based applications such as Elluminate, it can provide 24/7 access for students to pre-recorded lectures. Tegrity places lecture recording control in the instructor’s hands, in an easy to navigate and use format. For more information, please visit the IZone online at www.nova.edu/izone and search “Tegrity.” To schedule a Tegrity training session, please contact IZone Faculty Support Trainer Deborah Seepersaud at firstname.lastname@example.org or 954-262-4961.
