Classroom Capture

Last Updated: 06/07/2018


This technology automatically captures and stores audio and video from faculty lectures or special events. Captured recordings are available online for on-demand viewing through the end of the semester.

Instructors can request automated recordings of class lectures or special events in some large classrooms. These recordings post online, where students can stream them on-demand through the end of the semester and finals. (After finals, recordings from that semester are taken offline and archived.)

OIT uses Sonic Foundry's Mediasite solution to deliver this service.

The classrooms listed below have this technology available. If you are teaching in one of these facilities and would like your class recorded, please complete the Classroom Capture request form. A member of the Distance Learning Services will follow up with you to discuss your class or event.

I have found Classroom Capture to be wonderful addition, and I wish it was available for all my classes!

- Dr. Janet Casagrand

The team was  helpful, responsive and flexible. They worked hard to solve all of our issues to provide the best learning environment, and resources (capture), for our students.

- Dr. Kendi Davies

The students love lecture capture and it is a huge help to both them and my teaching assistants and myself to be able to have that record of the classroom material accessible all semester. It’s a tremendously powerful service.

Service Expansion Pilot - Fiscal Year 2018-2019

The Service Expansion Pilot seeks to broaden the service parameters, allowing users to leverage the service to capture educational-based content not associated with a specific course code, but in support of the academic mission of CU Boulder.  

  • Classroom capture is intended to support a CU Boulder academic course or the educational mission of the university. This includes any courses that have a CU Boulder course number associated with it. This pilot expands beyond just courses and will fund classroom capture for educational-based content that supports the academic and teaching mission of the campus.
  • The pilot will not fund external entities or auxiliaries (i.e. CU Boulder Conference Services); instead the $100 per hour charge will be assessed.

Please submit the classroom capture request form, and a representative from OIT will contact you regarding any costs associated with your request(s).

Note: You may be asked to provide a Speedtype to OIT as part of your request.

Service Cost Features
Automated, Pre-scheduled lecture capture for educational-based content Free Includes hosting the content for one semester.
Automated, Pre-scheduled recordings for non-educational-based content $100/hour Includes hosting the content for one semester and access to download and export recordings. 
Additional Coordination $45/hour Includes coordination, set-up, other unique circumstances. 
Content export $45/hour Applies to requests for previously-recorded content.
