In an effort to revitalize Clemson's Video Infrastructure and streamline the process for videos used in courses, Clemson University will be transitioning away from its current lecture capture systems:
Over the summer Clemson Online and CCIT will be working together to revitalize Clemson's video infrastructure and streamline the architecture of our videoconferencing, lecture capture and personal capture software to meet the changing needs of our faculty, staff and students. Classrooms that are currently equipped with lecture capture equipment will be upgraded to support the new system during the summer semester. Changes to Clemson's video conferencing infrastructure will enable web-based video conferencing in addition to the systems you use today.
Our current system for video infrastructure is Ensemble. Over 154 faculty already use and are familiar with the Ensemble Video platform for hosting video lectures. We will be expanding on this license to include their lecture capture hardware called Ensemble Studio. This new technology will also add new delivery methods and archival opportunities for both online and campus based classes. These new alternatives provide faculty and staff with more reliable higher quality products that have the ability to produce superior course materials and increase classroom interactions with students.
