What is it?
VidGrid allows for easy recording of video, audio and screen capture from most devices.
Why use it?
VidGrid is unique in its ability to screen record, record using a computer’s camera, or do both simultaneously. It has automatic closed captioning, and also enables users to edit, download, and share recorded or uploaded video. 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.
Use case example
VidGrid also enables non-users to record video using a guest link; videos get automatically sent to the user’s account. Biochemistry Laboratory Coordinator Katy Muzikar utilized this feature during the Fall 2020 semester. She had students record introductions with the guest record feature as a way to get to know her students (and for them to get to know each other!) before the first class meeting.
