Tegrity is the supported lecture capture service for on-ground and on-line learning at Northeastern. It is available on all classroom, faculty and staff computers. Integration with Blackboard makes recording, uploading and viewing easy for faculty and students.
Tegrity helps educators build content for use in flipped classrooms by providing a simple way to merge visuals and lecture. No video editing skills are necessary – the Tegrity recorder uses simple play, pause, and stop controls with basic annotation tools for highlighting and drawing. Recordings and supplementary materials can be uploaded to Blackboard through the Tegrity course page and shared or restricted at instructor discretion. Tools for running detailed or summary reports on access and viewing history are available from the Tegrity user home page. Instructors now have additional options to enable student recording for audio and video assignments or proctor online exams with Tegrity Remote Proctor.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act governs the release of student information to the public, including information that associates grading information with a particular student or information that confirms a student’s presence in a particular course. As a result, faculty are advised to inform students in the syllabus that lectures may be recorded. In addition, faculty are encouraged to avoid recording video or audio of students unless there is a pedagogical need or unless recording students is necessary in order to capture necessary class proceedings. Further, faculty are encouraged to consider whether students are shown in recordings before deciding to release a video to an audience other than the class it was recorded in. Faculty and staff are responsible for obtaining student consent for any materials in which student participation is recorded and distributed. A consent and release form is available here (Northeastern Consent and Release Form)
Faculty, staff, and students are responsible for observing copyright law, including educational fair use guidelines, permissions and university policies for incorporating third party content into a Tegrity recording. Please refer to the University's Patent and Copyright and Fair Use policies for more information. Duplication or redistribution by students is prohibited. Students may not copy or redistribute lecture capture materials without the express, written permission of the course instructor. Unauthorized duplication or dissemination of lecture capture materials may violate federal or state law and University policy. Violation of University policy may result in disciplinary action. All videos are the property of Northeastern University.
