Change from Tegrity to Kaltura will provide many benefits

In the Fall 2017 semester, Academic Technology completed a review of the “lecture capture” service.  Faculty who have been using lecture capture provided valuable input to our review of product offerings from Tegrity, Kaltura, and Zoom.  The results of the review were presented to ASAC+, the governing body for Academic Technology, on December 7.  ASAC+ approved the recommendation to transition from Tegrity to Kaltura’s lecture capture products, starting with the Summer 2018 courses.

Switching to Kaltura’s lecture capture products will provide UNH faculty and students many benefits:

  • Better integration with the myCourses LMS
  • A single user interface to learn and support for working with media, regardless of the source
  • Access to the automatic captioning features and caption editing for recorded lectures
  • Improved editing capabilities
  • Significant cost savings

For the Spring 2018 semester, there are no changes to the lecture capture service.  Faculty who have been using Tegrity can continue to do so, and Academic Technology will continue to provide training and support on Tegrity.  Starting with the Summer 2018 courses, all new lecture capture content should be made with Kaltura’s tools.  Academic Technology will release a training schedule soon for faculty to learn about the new offerings.

Many faculty have been using Tegrity and creating recordings in that tool for over 7 years.  We will be migrating all of this content over to Kaltura’s hosting.  Details on this are still to be worked out, but faculty will not have to re-record any lectures or other videos that have already been created.

There will be much more to come related to this transition.  We will maintain a public website with news, details, and important dates about this transition.  You can visit https://unh.edu/lecture-capture for the latest information.
