What is a 110 classroom?
All Nelson Hall classrooms are 110 classrooms with the exception of the Economics conference room, the basement computer labs and the RTP MBA classrooms.
A “110 classroom” is owned by the University and, although Poole has priority for most Nelson classrooms, Registration & Records makes the final decisions on course placement in these rooms.
What is classroom capture?
Classroom capture means that the content displayed by the classroom projector and instructor audio is recorded for later viewing. Some classrooms can also capture video of the instructor. You can opt-in for automatic classroom capture with Mediasite.
All classrooms in Nelson Hall are capable of Mediasite classroom capture. Some classrooms can record content using Zoom. However, the instructor will have to start a Zoom meeting and run all classroom presented-materials through the Zoom meeting (meaning students in the classroom will see the Zoom host buttons).

How do I sign up for Mediasite classroom capture?
- Schedule your course in an available room.
- Submit a classroom capture request.
- Complete a training session.

How do I adjust the camera focus in my Mediasite/Zoom recording?

Can student groups use classroom technology to record their meetings?
Yes, all students, faculty and staff with active Unity IDs can log in and create Zoom sessions at ncsu.zoom.us. They can also record their sessions to share with faculty or classmates.
