Tegrity Records 325,000 Hours of Lectures
Ed tech developer Tegrity reported this week that usage of its Campus 2.0 classroom capture system hit record levels last year, including, among other things, capturing 325,000 hours of faculty lectures on Tegrity servers in a 12-month period.
The company also reported that "students logged 2.5 million student class reviews, accumulating 1 million hours of study time using Tegrity Campus 2.0."
Tegrity Campus 2.0 provides, among other things, the ability to capture, search, and retrieve classroom lectures; online, podcast, and cell phone delivery of content; digital note-taking capabilities; and various reporting functions. The system automatically captures, stores, and indexes classes for replay.
The company's president and CEO, Isaac Segal, added that in terms of student usage, the typical session involves about "15 highly fragmented minutes" spent reviewing classes, focusing on what they need to know, rather than reviewing an entire session from start to finish.
