TechSmith Relay (formally Camtasia Relay) is a lecture capture tool utilized at WVU Health Sciences Center that can be used with PowerPoint to easily deliver a fully narrated and animated PowerPoint presentation. It is designed so instructors and presenters can easily record live lectures, learning objects, or presentations and publish them automatically to their SOLE course so that the videos are available in the highest-quality formats for a broad audience in a short time frame.
In order to use TechSmith Relay a Profile must be created for the course/site first. Profiles are course/site specific and are not created individually for users; multiple users can use the same course/site profile. There is also the option to upload a recording as a Guest. Each time a recording is submitted two things happen; it is uploaded to the server and then it is processed to the course/site. Logging into a profile means that both of these steps occur automatically but using the Guest option means that the recording will need to be manually processed to the correct course/site. Please contact SOLE Support if you have uploaded a recording using the Guest option or if you have questions regarding a recording.
