What is an analog classroom?
For your face-to-face class, you can use a whiteboard and/or you can present material via the projector using the teaching computer, laptop computer, or doc cam.
Mediasite Classroom Capture
If you opt into Medisite classroom capture, it will record you standing at the front of the room and record anything sent to the projector. It will capture audio from you and your students. It will NOT capture your whiteboard.
If you wish to use Zoom, you must start the meeting from the lectern computer. You need to share any presentation material through the Zoom meeting, and students in your face-to-face class will see all of the Zoom controls.The Zoom audio and instructor video will capture the microphone from the teaching computer.
