Automated Lecture Capture

CTE Coursecasting is an automated service available in select learning spaces for creating and delivering rich multimedia presentations, class recordings, or events that can be viewed on-line. No instructor software is required. Students can watch presentations and courses on CTE’s Classroom Portal Web page, or they can subscribe to an RSS feed that will notify them when new material is available for review.

Available To

  • Faculty and Students


The automated coursecasting service captures, encodes and posts lectures on a Web page where students can view them after class. The recording equipment in these rooms is scheduled to automatically capture classroom content, including anything displayed on the data projector. This technology is designed to automate the recording and delivery of classroom lectures and presentations. No instructor software or configuration is required.

Key Features

  • Access control – Access to presentations and recordings is limited to course participants, or can be expanded to the UW community, or anyone in the world.
  • Available anytime – Students can access recordings of their class anytime during the quarter. The recordings are removed at the end of the quarter.
  • Technical support – Technical support is available at CTE’s help desk.
