Overview

The BlueReview Lecture Capture project allows for easy to use lecture capture in LSA-ISS supported lecture halls and auditoria. All BlueReview recordings are scheduled in advance. The system captures the microphone’s audio feed and whatever video is presented through the projector. The two streams are combined and a link emailed to the instructor from which they may either download the file or make it available through CTools. Any instructor teaching in BlueReview-enabled classrooms may submit a scheduling request (we require at least one week's advance notice). Students wishing to schedule recordings require a faculty sponsor to submit the request.

Please see the BlueReview Frequently Asked Questions for more information.

Who can use the service?: 

Faculty

Interested faculty can submit a scheduling request over the web to get started. Scheduling requests must be submitted one week in advance of the recording date.

We capture the video at 15 frames per second at a 640x480 resolution, so we recommend that any text use a font size large enough to be seen at that resolution.

Students

Once the uploaded video recording has been approved, it should be available via either CTools or direct download link, depending on how your instructor set things up.

If you need additional assistance deciding which option is right for you please contact the ISS Learning Technologies and Consulting group at lsa-iss-ltc@umich.edu.

Where can the service be used?: 

Audio and video recordings can only be made in specific ISS-supported locations; a list is available on the BlueReview FAQ page. Playback of those recordings is available both on and off campus.
