Tegrity allows faculty to record an entire lecture in a Tegrity-enabled classroom or to record supplementary material outside of class for students to access online at their convenience.

Tegrity Overview

Tegrity is Lecture Capture software that records the content shown on the computer screen, such as a PowerPoint presentation, along with the instructor's audio. Tegrity captures, stores, and indexes this content online for students to watch at their convenience. Instructors can also allow students to create their own Tegrity recordings for a course that can be visible to the whole class or just the instructor.

How to Get Started with Tegrity

What is required to create a Tegrity recording?

  • If you are recording in a Tegrity-enabled classroom, the classroom computer and the microphone have already been set up.
  • If you wish to create a recording on your own computer, you will first need to install the Tegrity Recorder.
  • Your computer will also need a microphone connected in order for Tegrity to capture your audio. Any standard headset works great, or you can also use a wireless lavalier microphone or even a room microphone.

How do I get the Tegrity Recorder installed on my computer?

  • If you have a SLU-managed PC: Please contact the IT Service Desk to request the Tegrity Recorder.
  • If you have a personal computer (Mac or PC): Please follow the How to Install the Tegrity Recorder instructions. You must have Admin rights to your computer to complete the installation.

Do I need a Blackboard course in order to create Tegrity recordings?

  • Yes. All Tegrity recordings are associated with a course in Blackboard (or an instructor's private course that exists only in Tegrity). If the Tegrity recordings are for a Banner course, then a corresponding course already exists in Blackboard.
  • If the Tegrity recordings are for a department, program, or organization, you can request a course site in Blackboard with which to associate the recordings. Click here for the non-Banner Blackboard Course Site request form.
