Video and audio recording services are available to instructors on a limited basis at no charge for instructional uses. Instructional uses are defined as those activities associated with a course listed in the University course roster.
Audio / Video Services for courses include:
Academic Technology staff produce high quality recording for one-time events like guest speakers, student presentations, field trips, or documentation of research.
- Panopto is a self-service, no cost service that is available to instructors. Panopto enables instructors to easily record lectures at their desk or podium using a webcam and microphone for online distribution to students.
- MediaSite is hardware based and has a cost associated with using it. MediaSite is usually used to record entire courses for distance learning efforts and produces high quality recordings in a Cornell-branded interface. Use of MediaSite needs to be scheduled before the semester starts since set up is required along with a technician to do the recording. MediaSite uses a camera in the classroom and can capture interactions and use of a white board.
- VideoNote is an outside vendor that will record the lectures in a course and post them on the internet. For early planners, subsidies may be available for this fee-based service.
Adobe Connect online conference rooms (webinars) are available for small lectures, office hours, and research group meetings. This is a no-fee service that allows document sharing, polling, chat, and video in a web browser interface.
