What is WyoCast?
WyoCast is the process of capturing sound, video, computer images, and presentations and wrapping it all up in a package that can be viewed live (real-time) or later, on demand, using a simple Internet connection. Viewers can watch captured lectures in their entirety, or in specific sections, by simply selecting a slide in the presentation. From there, they have the ability to skip, fast forward, and rewind throughout the recording. This technology will allow classroom lectures to be available to students on the web and can be utilized in the recording and streaming of special events, supplemental material and much more.

Have you ever heard of classroom capture technologies? Would your students benefit from being able to review your lectures after class is over? One UW student used the phrase, "TiVo for lectures" to describe this rapidly growing technology development in higher education, and he is excited to see this service come to UW to serve the students and faculty.
