What is Tegrity?

Tegrity is a cloud based "capture" software application that is accessed totally online. Tegrity captures whatever is on the desktop of your computer or IPad with either audio or audio and video combined. Tegrity is available to the entire FSU campus and the Tegrity App, necessary to use on computer has been loaded on all classroom support computers. Tegrity is free and also very easy to use. It is as simple as 'Start/Stop'. It does not require hours of learning but minutes.


Tegrity functions by recording the entire class session giving faculty the opportunity to upload each lecture session while making it available and accessible to all students within minutes after the presentation. Media may include but not limited to PowerPoints, video, audio, and any or all activity associated with the course management system being used. Instructors also have the option of making the recordings available to selected students rather than the entire class.

The versatility of information delivery through direct access to the Tegrity repository, or having the recordings downloaded to their personal mobile devices (i.e. , such as an IPod, IPad, or cell phone, Droid) are also added advantage to this type of technology. There is an APP in the Apple store for Tegrity.

In institutions where Tegrity has been used, it has enhanced the experience for every student to achieve success in their coursework by giving them opportunities to revisit course material covered in class, as well as reinforcing complex ideas and supporting student notes that may have overlooked important concepts in the course lecture.

For you to use Tegrity you must first request a link in any Blackboard course using either the Control Panel in Blackboard or contact Joanna Southerland at Joanna.southerland@fsu.edu who is on loan from the College of Business to help with Tegrity implementation campus wide. Once there is an initial connection to any Blackboard course, Tegrity can be accessed at http://fsu.tegrity.com. At this site, you have your own private course and can record in there and then chose to move to your real course or send a direct link to specific person(s).

Once you record, stop, and upload (these screens all show up), your Tegrity recording is rendered on your computer and then once done, the recording is shipped via cloud to Tegrity computers and through FSUID connection will appear as a link in a Blackboard course or your private course; you choose.
