Knowledgebase: Online Lectures
Lecture Recording Overview

Article Last Updated March 2020

Please note: Pre-recording lectures and providing them through eClass is one of the recommended strategies as part of the U of A's shift to online courses in response to Covid-19. 

This article outlines the options available to instructors who need to record lectures and deliver them online to students. Recorded lectures posted in eClass give students the flexibility to view them on demand. There are a wide range of methods for doing this but it is a good recommendation to keep videos to a maximum of 10 - 15 minutes long - these are more engaging and don't cause bandwidth or connection issues.

Record Directly Into eClass

Record Using Online Meeting Software

  • Most of the available online meeting tools provide the option to share slides or a full screen and record audio. (No students need to be present for the recording.)
  • Meetings recordings made using Google Meet are automatically saved to Google Drive and can be embedded in eClass.
  • Recordings made in eClassLive (Adobe Connect) or Zoom are automatically accessible from eClass. (Zoom recordings can also be recorded onto user's local computers.) 

Record Using Content Creation Software and Upload

Record Online and Link

  • If you record a video using another platform, such as Screencast-o-matic (free) or Loom (free if you sign up with your @ualberta.ca account) you can upload your video to Google Drive or Youtube for easy sharing.
  • Recording urls can be added anywhere in eClass.
