Tegrity lectures being converted to MP4 format

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, bzv@k-state.edu.
