Tegrity lectures in K-State Online are currently being converted to an MP4 video format for delivery in the new Axio Flash player. The Flash player makes it easier for students to view video, including converted Tegrity videos, without having to download additional plug-ins. The decision was made to move away from Tegrity’s proprietary format to an open, popular format and as a result of the recent IT Needs Assessment survey.
Converting the thousands of videos online will not be completed until October. Some lectures will continue to play in Tegrity format while conversion is being completed. Tegrity lectures will continue to work, but will be accessed in an MP4 format. See this one-minute example of a video converted from Tegrity to Flash.
Faculty do not need to do anything for the conversion of their lectures. The Office of Mediated Education is handling the converting, uploading, and replacement of current Tegrity lectures in all K-State Online courses. Questions about the Tegrity conversion to MP4 can be sent to Bryan Vandiviere, email@example.com.
K-State Online will be unavailable during the scheduled upgrade to version 8.0 beginning 10 p.m. Friday, Aug. 8, until 8 a.m. Monday, Aug. 11. Service will be restored sooner, if possible.
For a complete list of new features, improvements and updates, see What’s New in K-State Online 8.0. You may also download a PDF of the information for printing and easy distribution to other interested faculty.
Course owners will not need to complete any additional steps following the upgrade. Courses will appear as before, but will include the version 8.0 improvements.
