If you would like to schedule automatic captures for an entire term, please fill out our "Request Lecture Capture" form using the action link on the right hand side of the page.

  • To begin, turn on the AV system in the room and select a source to send to the projector screen in the classroom.
  • If you are in a dual projection classroom, please make sure to source to the RIGHT projector. This step must be completed in order to capture the recording.
