How it Works

Record lecture capture videos

1. Record videos

Start with a simple and intuitive lecture capture video recorder that works from any computer or mobile device with a few clicks.

Share securely

2. Share and manage content

Videos you create are then uploaded to an easy-to-navigate online video library that privately stores your content.

Lecture capture quiz results

3. See the results

After your video is uploaded track learning in real-time with Relay's built-in analytics, so you can quickly monitor student participation.

Lecture capture across your campus

Relay makes recording lectures simple and consistent — whether in a lecture hall, office, or anywhere in between. Deploy the recorder to as many classrooms as you want. Relay's collaboration with Matrox® now offers hands-off capture and scheduling.

Seamless LMS integration

Make the most of your existing Blackboard, Moodle, Canvas, Brightspace, or other learning management system that supports LTI. Students can access video content directly through the LMS with no additional log-in. Analytics and quiz scores are reported automatically to the gradebook.

The simplest way to let instructors create and share lecture videos

Instructors need to create videos for their courses, but get held back by expensive, complicated systems. Relay gives you an easy and cost-effective way to create and maintain videos for online learning.

Greater adoption

Get more instructors using your lecture capture solution, without the constant need for support and help from IT. Record class in the background, so instructors can focus on teaching, not creating video. Or set up automated recording in your class lectures for hands-off capture and scheduling.

Better engagement

Create an interactive online learning experience. Know if students are watching the content with quizzing and built-in analytics. Turn any PowerPoint presentation into rich, personal video content.

Improved course completion

Instructors can track student data to find strengths and weaknesses. They are able to provide quick responses to students, follow along with their performance, and guide them in the right direction.

How much is an unused video platform really costing you?

How many instructors aren't using your current solution? How many videos go unwatched because they don't engage students? How many potential videos aren't getting created because the system is too complicated? Besides the money, a lack of an easy-to-use system may already be costing you a great deal.
