Capture your lecture.

AMDS provides presentation recording and lecture capture services using Mediasite technology from Sonic Foundry. Mediasite completely automates the recording, distribution, management and analytics of high-quality video and multimedia presentations.These recordings are available both live and on-demand, viewable from any desktop and most mobile devices. Links to captured content can be placed within D2L by your organizations Instructional Design resource.



What is Mediasite Lecture Capture?

Mediasite Lecture Capture - sometimes referred to as content capture, course capture or class capture - is a system for recording (capturing) classroom-based presenations and sharing them on the Internet via the campus Learning Management System (LMS), Desire2Learn (D2L). All aspects of the presentation are captured including the presenter, their voice, the computer screen, and any computer audio. All elements are synchronized into a single web browser. Advanced functions allow you to attach documents to your final recording, perform system-wide searches of video, metadata and indexed slides, and conduct interactive polling and Q&A for live webcasts.

AMDS & your local Tier 1 typically capture for "on-demand" which enables viewers to watch the presentaion at a later time. A "live-streaming" option is available which allows viewers to wath the presenation as it happens. By default, all live presenations are converted to on-demand when the event concludes.

Class capture at OUHSC is used primarily for capturing academic presenations. The schools of Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy and Dentistry all use Mediasite for lecture capture regularly.

Retention & Purge Policy

How long are Mediasite captures retained?

University policy is to retain captures for one calendar year (12 months). However, due to the nature of some of our health programs, some course related material is retained for 18 months. Payment options are available should you wish to extend the hosting period of content beyond the standard 12 months. AMDS charges $25 per recording, for each additional year. An SUR must be submitted to AMDS for payment. 

Annual Mediasite Content Purge

To keep costs down, an annual content purge is scheduled for July 1. All Local Mediasite local admins are mandated to use the "Scheduled Actions" feature to manage the automated deletion of your content. When setting up a capture, all Mediasite local admins must set the scheduled action to move the content to the Recycle Bin twelve (12) months after capture/posting. 

If you have content that is being recycled/reused year-after-year, it needs to be moved to your college’s “Enduring Materials” folder. Content in this folder will not be immediately subject to annual purges as long as analytics shows the content has recently been viewed. This information is covered in the required Mediasite training for local admins. For more information, contact your local Tier 1, or the campus Mediasite Tier 2 Admins at (405) 271-2318.
