Starting on Monday, June 8, 2020, multiple classrooms in Seigle Hall will be available for instructors to have their fall course lectures pre-recorded. There are high-resolution cameras mounted on the back walls of the classrooms, as well as headset microphones for instructors. Center for Teaching and Learning staff members will be on-site to help you use Kaltura to record your lectures.
To sign up to reserve a Seigle Hall classroom, you can do so via this spreadsheet. Click on the page for the room you are interested in using and enter your WashU email address into the sheet. You will then be contacted for further information. Two weeks at a time will be available for sign-up, with an additional week added each Friday.
Upon arriving at Seigle Hall, please first go to Room 109 to sign in. Please bring a face mask, which is needed to enter the room. If you have your own USB headset microphone, please bring it. Otherwise you may borrow a sanitized mic for your lectures.
If you are not familiar with Kaltura, the program records two streams: a live camera recording of you and also the computer monitor screen. If you are using a computer (for PowerPoint, YouTube, animations, etc.), you must use the computer in the classroom and not your own laptop.
If you are planning on giving any form of lecture with minimal blackboard/whiteboard use (e.g., with PowerPoint or paper notes), then the camera will be fixed on the center of the front of the room. If you are planning on using a larger area of the blackboard/whiteboard, please let the CTL know because live control of the camera will be required. This will be done remotely by someone not in the room with you.
Instructors using the computer will need to have a means of accessing their files, either through the internet or physically on a thumb drive.
Please feel free to contact Liz Peterson at email@example.com with any questions regarding taping.
