Essential Tool for Student EngagementJul 3, 2017
Instructional technologies make navigating the ever-changing landscape of education a little easier. TechSmith Relay, an application designed for faculty to create and maintain videos for both online learning and in-person classrooms is free for faculty, staff and students as of July 1st, 2017. This user-friendly application isn’t just your ordinary lecture capture software—faculty can also track analytics within the tool to learn how their students are engaging with their content.
TechSmith Relay allows instructors to quickly record lecture content, tutorials or personalized feedback for their students. It is also a great solution for students to record and submit presentation assignments online. Online instructors will find Relay's integrated workflow appealing, since the recording, sharing and assessment of course content is contained within one system. Instructors who want to "flip" their traditional classrooms will find that Relay is an essential tool for accomplishing this goal.
The inclusion of a quizzing engine makes course videos more interactive and can help increase student engagement, reduce mind-wandering and boost retention. TechSmith Relay's Canvas LMS integration allows quiz scores to be transferred directly to the Canvas gradebook. For more information on the Canvas app, please contact the CU Online Help Desk.Faculty, staff and students can readily access TechSmith Relay at ucdenver.techsmithrelay.com. Get started by watching training videos and keep an eye out for in-person training sessions offered by CU Online this fall.
