Tegrity’s Lecture Capture Improves Distance Learning

McGraw-Hill’s Tegrity lecture capture has boosted the Washington State Board for Community & Technical Colleges’ distance learning program by enabling instructors to share video recordings of their lectures with students outside of the classroom. The number of online learners (both in hybrid and online courses) in this program continues to climb, having risen 67% last year. The Washington State Board for Community & Technical Colleges’ needed a distance learning technology to scale with the program’s growth, and turned to Tegrity based on positive reviews from other institutions.


Faculty members liked being able to record lectures in advance and upload them for student review. That way, face-to-face class time can be used for more productive activities, such as small seminar discussions, debates, Q&A sessions and problem solving. “Instead of just having a professor lecturing in front of the class for an hour,” said Cable Green, director of e-learning and open education, “the time can be allocated to two-way conversations and other activities.”
