Tegrity for Students

The following tutorials are designed to help students get started with using Tegrity and viewing class recordings.

Getting Started

Participating In/Viewing a Session in Tegrity

Student Recording in Tegrity

Students are also able to record sessions in Tegrity. However, student accounts have limited privileges when it comes to editing and managing recordings. For more information, visit the LT page on student recordings.

There are a number of ways in which students can use their own Tegrity recordings. Examples of this include:

  • Recording oral assignments and projects with Tegrity will allow students to turn them into artifacts, which they may want to store and display in their ePortfolio.
  • Virtual presentation in an online learning environment. Tegrity can allow students in online courses to give presentations to their class directly from any computer with a webcam. Other students and instructors in the course can comment or question during different parts of the presentation as well.
  • Using as a video blog/student reflection space. Students can record themselves voicing their thoughts on the course, to be viewed and commented on by others in the class.

Please note that Tegrity recordings (instructor and student) can only be played through the Tegrity player. Even if a session is downloaded by a member of the course, the recording can only be played through Tegrity and not uploaded for play to sites like YouTube.
