Instructions for Students
Your instructor will provide you with a link to his/her course catalog for the recorded lectures. The catalog page will include all recorded lectures for that course. The names of these recorded sessions will include date/time information to help you find the one you wish to view.
You will be required to login before viewing any recorded lecture, which restricts lectures to only those instructors and students in the class. Login with your campus username and password.
The course catalog lists all recorded lectures, along with some descriptive information, e.g., the date of the recording and length of the recording. The catalog includes some basic sorting functionality and a simple search option. Click the link for the session and it will launch in a web-based player which uses Microsoft Silverlight.
If a recording is not listed and you think that it should be included, make sure the Sort By is listed as Date, the Air Dates are empty, the Type is All, and the Search box is empty. Also, keep in mind that it will take a few hours or even a few days for recorded lectures to get uploaded and processed.
Lectures recorded with MediaSite - those classes recorded in MAC 107 – will display two windows: one showing the material from the computer presentation and another smaller window showing the instructor. Display controls that allow students to adjust the window arrangement, e.g., picture in picture, etc, are on the upper right of the window. Navigation controls are at the bottom of the window.
Lectures recorded with Camtasia Relay - those classes recorded in a classroom other than MAC 107 - will see only the material from the computer presentation; there is no window showing the instructor. Basic navigation controls are at the bottom of the window.
Most of the problems students encounter are caused by using an older version of Windows Media Player and Silverlight. Any student who has problems playing a recorded lecture should update Media Player and Silverlight. (Current versions of Media Player include Silverlight, so updating Media Player updates Silverlight.)
Support for recorded lectures is provided by the Learning Technology Center (LTC) – the same folks who support D2L, etc. Students with technical problems and questions can contact the LTC at firstname.lastname@example.org or 465.2286.
