New resources for recording or streaming classroom lectures

Sent to faculty by Jill Gordon, interim senior vice provost for faculty affairs, on Jan. 14

Dear faculty,

Earlier this week, Provost Sotiropoulos provided information to support your return to the classroom for the spring 2022 semester.

Since Monday, the VCU Academic Technologies and VCU Online teams worked diligently to develop additional resources providing how-to videos, step-by-step instructions, FAQs, etc. that will help you be nimble in providing your course content in person and remotely as necessary.

To access this information, visit the Faculty One-Stop and and go to the new “Online Teaching Support” tile and click on “Instructional Technology Toolkit.” Among the topics in the toolkit are:

  • Using the podium computer and audio/video equipment in centrally-supported classrooms
  • Using your laptop to record your lecture while in a centrally-supported classroom space
  • Scheduling and recording Zoom meetings
  • Using Kaltura’s captioning
  • Using Canvas’ Speed Grader, Rubrics, Syllabus, Assignment & Groups

Additional classroom videos are still being created and will be added when completed. I also encourage you to review the resources available through the “Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence” tile on the One-Stop.

Thanks very much for your continued excellence in teaching during these unprecedented times.

Best wishes,

Jill Gordon, Ph.D.
Interim senior vice provost for faculty affairs
