Lecture Capture

Lecture capture recordings supplement regular class sessions by allowing students to review material after class sessions and to fill in information they might have missed during class. Lecture capture services are available in 7 smart classrooms and spaces at NYU Tandon:

  • RH 215, RH 304, RH 325, JAB 474, JAB 475, JAB 674, and Pfizer Auditorium

The lecture capture system automatically records the lectures for participating courses, and makes these lectures available online for students enrolled in that course. Each recording provides students access to:

  • Video of the instructor and whiteboard/chalkboard notes
  • Instructor audio
  • Classroom projector display, including virtual ink notes on SMART Podium or Eno Interactive Whiteboard

Each session recording is automatically uploaded to a website accessible via NYU Classes by the instructor and students of that course.

For Instructors

Any class scheduled in a lecture capture classroom will automatically be enrolled in the lecture capture service Briteclass. The system turns itself on and off automatically to capture participating courses.

No extra steps are required of participating faculty members beyond wearing a wireless microphone during class to record the lecture.

Instructors who would prefer that their lectures not be recorded may opt out of the program by emailing SOE-lecturecapture@nyu.edu with a request to opt out.

Faculty members may request that their classes be scheduled in a lecture capture classroom, if available, at the time when courses are being scheduled. Interested faculty should notify their department’s course scheduler, when course scheduling is being done for the semester.

For questions about the lecture capture program, please contact SOE-lecturecapture@nyu.edu.

For Students


The lecture capture program has been piloted at the School of Engineering since Fall 2013. The system was first installed in 1 classroom, and was expanded to include 6 classrooms and Pfizer Auditorium in Fall 2016. Tandon is working to increase lecture capture availability for additional classes.
