Course Recordings on Blackboard
Most Graduate Tax Program classes are recorded using Mediasite, a lecture capture system that records the classroom audio and video of the professor, and directly records any computer presention in real time. Recordings are available to the students enrolled in the class to use for review, accessible via the Internet through the University of Denver's Blackboard e-Education platform.
These 3-4 minute excerpts are from regular classes recorded in April 2010, reproduced here as WMV files. (You will need software that plays WMV files, such as Microsoft's free Windows Media Player, to view these videos.) The active playback controls are at the bottom of the video window. The actual recordings that students use appear larger on the computer screen and have additional playback features not reproducible here.
