Tegrity for Faculty and Staff
Tegrity is a screen capture application that is integrated with Blackboard and is used to record presentations, including computer screens, audio, video and document cameras. Users can record and post lectures, track statistics on who has watched them, and determine which areas of the lecture students spend the most time reviewing. Recordings are published online so they may be streamed or downloaded for viewing at a later time. Students can also record in Tegrity, which may be useful for assignments.
Tegrity was updated to the Summer 2015 release on July 20th. Below are some of the major changes.

- If a URI error or the error, "Failed to load Player..." pops up when using Firefox, watch this video for a workaround.
