Lecture Capture | NYU Tandon School of Engineering

Lecture Capture

Record • Instruct • Review

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.

About the Technology

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

  • Classroom projector display, whiteboard/chalkboard notes

  • Instructor audio

Each session recording is automatically uploaded to Media Gallery in NYU Classes.

Lecture capture services, Briteclass and Panopto, are available in smart classrooms and spaces at NYU Tandon.

Briteclass equipped classrooms are managed by Media Services. These learning spaces can be found at 6 MetroTech Center (Rogers Hall and Jacobs Academic Building), and 5 MetroTech Center (Pfizer Auditorium). 

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

For Instructors

Briteclass Classrooms

Any class scheduled in a lecture capture classroom or space in 6 MetroTech Center and 5 MetroTech Center will automatically be enrolled in the Briteclass lecture capture service. 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.

Instructions on the lecture capture program are provided to all instructors assigned to the lecture capture spaces.

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.

Briteclass Instructions for Instructors

Panopto Classrooms

Instructors teaching in RM 202 at 370 Jay Street must complete a form to request lecture capture. Instructors will need to provide their department account number.
