Recording a lecture in the CTE recording studio

Recording Studio

The CTE recording studio is designed to make recording instructional materials simple for instructors.

Using the Recording Studio

The recording studio is designed specifically for faculty members and graduate student instructors to record instructional content. It is equipped with a built-in camera, microphone, and viewscreen (which functions like a teleprompter), making the process of recording simple. It is also acoustically insulated for outside noise reduction. Instructors need simply bring a USB drive with a Powerpoint and start recording. Recording takes place through Panopto, the Lecture Capture software at BC, and recordings can be automatically uploaded into a Canvas course if desired, where students can then view the recordings.

First-time users are encouraged to schedule an appointment for an orientation of the space. In order to schedule an appointment and reserve the studio, please email the Center for Teaching Excellence.

Please also see our guide for video recording using Panopto.
