TechSmith Relay: About & How to Log In (All Users)
This document provides an explanation of the TechSmith Relay program and its uses.
TechSmith Relay will serve as the primary platform for storing media content across campus, giving faculty, students, and staff the ability to create, upload, and share videos from one location. In addition to its storing and sharing capabilities, TechSmith Relay allows users to do basic video editing, integrate quizzing and other video interactivity, and bring in external videos for enhancements. TechSmith Relay also has the capability to generate closed captioning, helping to meet University accessibility goals and achieve ADA compliance.
One of the greatest features for faculty and staff includes integration with Blackboard that also includes quizzing within the video content which can optionally report back to the grade center. This interactive quizzing will ideally help increase student engagement within flipped, blended, or online courses. Analytics allow users to see how much time is spent on the videos as well as the quiz results.
TechSmith Relay also has a simple video creation tool within the platform, or within the Fuse mobile app. Users can still choose to use Zoom as their primary choice for making videos as most video formats and videos from YouTube can be uploaded into TechSmith Relay.
No matter how you use Relay, follow this workflow
