Lecture Recording @ York

York University offers lecture recording resources to faculty and staff for use in enhancing and supplementing their teaching.

As most courses will be delivered remotely this Fall and Winter you may want to consider one or both of the tools York provides which can provide recording of your content for delivery to your students.

TechSmith Relay – York’s primary tool for recording on on-demand content from classroom, offices or your home and which can be automatically published (if you wish) into your eClass course.

Zoom – The primary tool for synchronous meetings for your courses that can also be recorded (with or without meeting participants) and included in your eClass course.
