Recording a Session & Sharing from Blackboard LMS

Modified on Tue, 16 Aug 2022 at 01:56 PM

InSpace's whole session recording feature allows hosts and co-hosts to record the entire session from their point of view as they move through the space.

Start an InSpace recording:

  1. Start an InSpace session. Recording is available in single spaces, the Auditorium, and the Conference Space. 
  2. Click the record button on the host toolbar on the left hand side.
  3. A notification will appear, prompting the host to select the InSpace browser tab to record. Hosts can also choose to create a transcript of their video recording in this window.
  4. A browser popup appears. Users should select the browser tab labeled 'Select this for recording'. This is necessary because it tells the web browser which tab to "share" with the InSpace recording feature.
  5. After clicking 'Share', all participants will see a notification that recording has begun.

While recording a session:

  • Everything the host hears and sees will be recorded, with the ability to Pause and Resume the recording.
  • Multiple hosts can record simultaneously during a session.
  • Hosts can record in all room configurations (Discussion Room, Presentation Room, Breakout Rooms, No Rooms) and can change the layout anytime during the recording session.
    • Note: In Firefox, recording is supported only in the discussion and presentation rooms.

Stop an InSpace recording:

  1. Click the recording button again in the host menu. 
  2. In the popup window, press the square 'stop' button. 
  3. A new popup will appear. Rename the recording if needed, then select 'Stop and save'.
  4. Once recording ends, a notification on your screen indicates that the recording has been saved to the Blackboard LMS. Note: Videos take approximately 1 hour to process before they are available for viewing and downloading.

Manage InSpace recordings:

  1. InSpace allows instructors to record sessions in the Classroom area and the Office. Students can record sessions in the student space. 
  2. Select the space from which you would like to select a recording: Classroom, Office, or Student Space
  3. Click the Recordings icon 
  4. Choose the recording you would like to share
  5. InSpace recordings can be shared with students individually or with the entire class.
  6. After selecting recipients click the Send button.
  7. Once the video has finished processing, students and professors can click on the video to watch through Blackboard.
  8. Click the download button to save the video file to your computer
  9. Click the delete button to remove the recording
