Distribute the Portable Recorder

Provide the portable recorder to presenters if there is any reason that presenters cannot (or should not) record and upload directly from the presentation computer. For example:

  • Presenters record on computers where they do not have permission to install applications.
  • Presenters record on computers that have limited or no network access.
  • You want to collect the presentations and upload them collectively at a later time.

Portable Recorder Access Options

Administrators can decide how they would like presenters to access the portable recorder. Go to System > System Options to set the Portable Recorder Download option.
