Overview

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

The Mac-based service was discontinued in August 2015 in favor of a new service, "Lecture Capture/Blue Review," which was not supported by LSA IT.

Please see the BlueReview Frequently Asked Questions for more information.

Who can use the service?: 

Note: The information here is obsolete but remains for historical reasons.

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