To sign up for an account and to begin using Camtasia Relay, it is recommended that
instructors register for a one-on-one training session. These sessions take approximately 15 minutes and cover the most important features
of the program.
All videos created with Camtasia Relay are automatically uploaded to the CCRI Media
Server and accessible via the uploader’s CCRI Media Library account.
Use of the Camtasia Relay lecture capture system is limited to Faculty/Staff and Administrators.
A BlackBoard course shell is required to post final product videos that have been
recorded using Camtasia Relay.
For optimal performance, it is recommended that videos are recorded and uploaded using
the recording monitor’s native resolution settings. The suggested maximum length for
a recorded file is 2 hours.
All video uploads should be done from a CCRI Campus. Following the correct steps,
files may be recorded off-site and later uploaded to the media server from a campus
location. For further details, please contact a member of IT Media Services or view the instructions provided here.
It is suggested that the instructor checks the progress of their video upload before
making additional recordings by logging in to the CCRI Camtasia Relay Website. If technical issues are experienced, please contact a member of IT Media Services. The CCRI IT Help Desk can also be contacted for more general computing assistance.
All videos that are no longer needed for class purposes should be deleted. If instructors
plan to capture current classroom content each semester, it is suggested that they
delete their old lecture videos on an annual basis to reduce overload on the media
Due to the nature of classroom lecture recording, instructors should adhere to all
relevant student privacy guidelines, as well as guidelines surrounding copyright and
