Classroom lecture capture remains operational for the foreseeable future. We will update this as needed.
As you consider how to deliver lecture-based content to your students, please review the resources below about recording in your home or office, as well as resources about classroom-based lecture capture.
Home, Office, or Lab Lecture capture
Consider recording short videos to share with your students, either to replace classroom lectures or to provide targeted support for student questions.
Please see these resources for support in creating your own instructional videos:

- A note for after you watch that last video: The instructions in the video aren’t clear on this, so be sure to select screen AND audio (and webcam, if you want). If you don’t proactively select audio for recording, you will record a silent movie.

Classroom Lecture Capture
If you teach in one of the 77 general assignment classrooms equipped to record lectures, you can request this service. These Lecture-Capture-capable rooms can record your audio, computer output, and the document camera; additionally, 27 of these rooms can record video of you and any board work you may do. Please review the following resources if you are interested in using this service.
- Is your classroom Lecture Capture capable?
- If you are not in a classroom capable of Lecture Capture, there are a couple of options:
- If your room has a DIY audio recorder in the room, you can record audio of your lectures and upload them to your Canvas course site
If your classroom has no built-in lecture recording capabilities, you can record your lecture using Kaltura Capture, AggieVideo’s screen capture tool. Please see the section above on Home, Office, or Lab Lecture Capture
- How do you request Lecture Capture for your classroom?
- How do you share Lecture Capture videos with your students?
- By default, Lecture Capture recordings will be automatically available to your students through Canvas’ Media Gallery, usually within an hour of the end of lecture.
- You can also manually share videos from a current or previously-recorded class through Canvas:
- How do I move a set of a previous term's lecture capture videos into the Media Gallery of a current Canvas course?
- How do I edit a previous term's video and embed it into a current Canvas course assignment or module?
