Lecture Recording

The university supports several options for producing recorded lecture presentations. 

Zoom has replaced Collaborate for eLearning


An enterprise version of Zoom has replaced Blackboard Collaborate. Zoom can be used for both academic and administrative needs of all faculty, students, and staff within the university system.

At this point, any Collaborate recordings you plan to reuse should have been transferred to Panopto. 

Zoom and Panopto Resources

Trainings on how to use Zoom and Panopto with Blackboard are available through the CTE Events Calendar.

Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams is included in the University’s Microsoft 365 Suite. It is primarily a web conferencing tool, and can be used to record lectures. Create a Teams meeting easily through the Outlook calendar, start recording and step through PowerPoint slides while narrating, as well as share other content such as applications and web sites. Teams also has a captioning tool that will create live captions during the recording. Recordings will generate as an .mp4 file that can be posted to a variety of online storage and streaming sites including Microsoft Stream or OneDrive (also in Office 365). Once posted, the link to your recording can be shared directly to a Blackboard course. 

Microsoft 365 PowerPoint with Stream or OneDrive

Members of the university community have access to Microsoft 365. This allows them to download the latest version of Microsoft PowerPoint, which includes lecture recording features. Once the slideshow is completed and the lecture is recorded, the lecture can be published to Microsoft Stream or OneDrive (also in Microsoft 365) as an .mp4 file. 

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
