Tegrity is lecture capture software. It allows professors to record their lectures with a camera and microphone. It also allows documents to be posted and PowerPoints be shown throughout the recorded presentation. This software allows online students to get the whole lecture experience without actually being in a classroom. This software allows students to view or review a lecture via Mac, PC, iPod, or mobile device.
Is there technology in the classrooms?
Many of our classrooms have been remodeled in the last few years. We call the updated classrooms “Smart Classrooms.” These rooms have a wide array of technology available for use. All of our Smart Classrooms have a computer, Symposium monitor, projector, document presenter, and Classroom Performance System (CPS, better known as clicker system). Most of the classrooms that are not considered Smart Classrooms have a computer and projector system installed. In addition to the smart classroom equipment, we have many labs and specialized classrooms that use industry specific technology to help students learn the different types of technology they will be using in their fields of study.
Will you use technology to collaborate with other students in both your introductory and advanced courses?
Yes, all course levels encourage students to collaborate with their peers. Whether it's for a group project, to discuss course subjects, or to ask questions they may have. To do these things, we give you an array of technology to efficiently collaborate with other students.
Does the school give credit for courses taken online from other institutions and sources of instruction?Our Office of Transfer and Secondary School Partnerships web site has online and contact information to help determine if courses transfer to Ferris for credit.
