Preview and click Submit to upload your recording to the TechSmith Relay server. Once uploaded, it will be visible on IVLE.
You can close the programme. Your recording will be uploaded to the server in the background, as long as you are connected to the Internet.
If you switch off your computer or lose connection to the Internet, the upload will resume automatically the next time the computer is switched on and connected to the Internet.
You can record at home on a laptop and continue uploading to the server when you are on campus.
To monitor the upload progress, click on the server icon in TechSmith Relay to log in to the TechSmith Relay server website. Click the Presentations menu to view the upload status.
Once the presentation has been published, you will receive a Presentation Published email. Click the link in this email to view the recording.
A general guide, the video will be ready within 1 to 3 workings day. Do prepare your lecture earlier, just in case of sudden high video uploads.
