Personal Capture

What is Personal Capture?

Personal Capture utilizes My Mediasite, an all-in-one content creation and delivery platform. My Mediasite makes it a snap to create great looking videos, screencasts and slideshows, wherever you are. From demos and video training to flipped classes, lectures and assignments, everything you need is in one simple-to-use tool. Capture high quality slideshows or screencasts that preserve every annotation and screen movement. My Mediasite offers multiple formats to engage with a viewer and audience. This includes quizzes, polls, Q&A as well as comments and annotations. Pair your content with webcam video or simply a voice over, and My Mediasite’s Mosaic recorder does the rest. It synchronizes everything you say and show without requiring video production skills.

Student Data & OIT Services

A variety of data types are utilized by the University of Colorado in order to facilitate the academic experience and advance the success of the student body. In an effort to promote good digital citizenship, CU Boulder has created a resource for our student and faculty communities to better understand how personal data from our students is used within OIT’s services and tools.
