3) Establish Relationships with Leadership and Early Adopters

4) Ensure High-Quality Audio Recording

“You might be able to get by if you don’t see the instructor, of if they step outside the viewing angle of the camera, but if you can’t hear them, the capture is wasted. It’s critical that they pay attention to audio.”

5) Offer Flexibility for Instructors to Record Lectures Anywhere/Anytime

6) Ensure Adequate Storage and Processing on Servers

7) Engage with Other Colleges and Universities
