Work is well underway on an NDUS-wide rollout of Tegrity, an IT application that digitally records, stores, and plays back audio, video, and content. Tegrity is commonly called “lecture capture” technology, because it’s generally used to record lectures and presentations.
The State Board of Higher Education approved the rollout of Tegrity at its April board meeting as part of the Maximizing Results Through Efficiencies initiative.
A Tegrity demonstration site is already available for testing purposes.
The goal is to have Tegrity up at all 11 institutions of the NDUS in early June so that it will be fully ready for the start of the fall semester.
Orientation and training programs will be scheduled throughout the summer. Components of the training include implementation planning, product usage, and product support.
DSU, NDSU, and UND have already been using Tegrity and the NDUS contract will give NDSU and UND the ability to expand usage. Some institutions have been using Panopto, an alternative lecture capture technology. For those users, work is underway to migrate existing Panopto files to Tegrity.
