TEGRITY - Getting Started in Firefox

Tegrity allows the instructor to record any activity on his/her screen as well as any lecture given in front of his/her computer. This program can be used to enhance learning for distance, blended, and on-campus courses. Lecture recordings captured by Tegrity are archived; therefore the students can view them at any time. Students can also add bookmarks to any point of the video that they might have a question or comment about. Instructors can add bookmarks as well.
