VidGrid allows for easy recording of video, audio, and screen capture from most devices.
Teaching with VidGrid
VidGrid is unique in its ability to record from a webcam, record the users’ screen, or do both simultaneously. It has automatic closed captioning and also enables users to edit, download, and share recorded or uploaded videos. Users have the ability to insert questions, polls, and other elements to create interactive and engaging asynchronous videos, which makes VidGrid a good choice for faculty who would like to incorporate pre-recorded lectures and other asynchronous content into their courses.
VidGrid also enables non-users to record videos using a guest link. Videos are then automatically sent to the original user’s account. Watch the video (4:31) below to learn how Biochemistry Laboratory Coordinator Katy Muzikar utilizes this feature to have students record introductions as a way to get to know each other before the first class meeting.
