Tegrity is a lecture capturing software that allows instructors to capture video, audio and screen activity (separately or in real time) on a computer and upload it to a central web server for viewing.

Creating Tegrity Courses
If you are teaching an actual course listed on the registration system at any UW campus, Tegrity will automatically create a course for you. You can begin recording immediately by logging in to Tegrity.
Faculty, staff, and students who are not teaching a course can use the Tegrity Manager to create a course space to use for other purposes such as presentations, committees, group projects, training sessions, etc.

Why Use Tegrity in your Courses?
- Create hybrid courses where a significant portion of a class is online, replacing face-to-face time
- Give students the chance to review lectures in case they missed information in class
- Switch the classroom up--record lectures so students can watch them at home in advance. Use classroom time for questions and collaborative work
- Create lectures for days you know you'll be gone or for snow days
