Sakai Lecture Capture Catalog Set-Up

This semester, the Instructional Technology Group is running a pilot in which recorded lectures can be delivered to a Sakai course and the only people who can see the recording are people enrolled in the Sakai course – even if a link is forwarded to someone not in the course. Making the link private to the class allows you to record students, to only provide ADA accommodations as requested, and to use copyrighted materials under academic fair use.

This page provides step-by-step instructions, in video and text format, for setting up a lecture capture catalog in your Sakai site. Please note that you must have 1) made a Lecture Capture Request, and 2) have asked to be part of the Sakai integration pilot, before this will work properly. See our Lecture Capture page for more information.
