This post is to inform you that based on critical issues with the Tegrity software and Tegrity’s lack of evolution, ECU will be transitioning away from use of Tegrity by the end of the fall 2017 semester. Some faculty have also used Tegrity as the solution for students to submit recordings. Student recording will no longer be available as of August 1.
We have continuously experienced several critical issues with Tegrity’s services and the product road map is not yet addressing needs requested by our faculty. Below is a brief summary of critical issues.
- During the spring 2016, there were more than 267 failed student recordings across 17
- After transitioning to a new data storage system in September 2015, Tegrity performance degraded causing poor performance at ECU and full outages on other Tegrity
- Several potential security issues related to student recording.
Our plan is to begin exporting Tegrity content for you this spring and through the fall. We will provide more information on this process in the coming months. We will also offer training and support on using content in either Mediasite or VoiceThread. Faculty needing to record screen activity (mouse or cursor movements and typing) can accomplish this in Mediasite. VoiceThread can be used for basic asynchronous lecture capture and is recommended for faculty needing a solution for student recording that does not require recording screen activity.
To begin this transition, we invite you to attend a session where we will demonstrate Mediasite and VoiceThread. Information on the sessions is below along with links to Mediasite and VoiceThread resources.
