Class Recording Kit for Reynolda Campus

Class Recording Kit for Reynolda Campus Service Information

The Class Recording Kit provides faculty with self-service, easy-to-use video recording kits designed to record or broadcast (Google Meet, Webex, Zoom) an in-person class event to share with students who are unable to attend. These kits are not intended to be a substitute for video conferencing. These kits are limited in number and will be prioritized for classes with significant numbers of students in quarantine or isolation.

The Class Recording Kits include a camera with built in audio, a tripod, a Lavalier Microphone and receiver, an SD card, and charging cables (a USB to USB-C cable, two UBC-A to USB-C cables, and an SD to USB-C adapter).

If this is your first time using one of the Class Recording Kits, someone from our team will conduct a high-level training with you when you pick it up from the Service Desk.


If you plan to record your classes for review purposes or for students who are unable to attend, Wake Forest asks that you notify your students by sharing this notice in your syllabus or within the first week of class.


How it Works

  1. Request a Classroom Recording Kit through the AskDeac Common Request form.
  2. Pick up your kit from the IS Service Desk, located in the atrium of ZSR Library during hours of operation. If this is your first time requesting the kit, a member of our team will walk you through the setup.
  3. Set up your equipment before your class event. You can reference this handout for step-by-step instructions on how to use the camera.
  4. Record or broadcast (Google Meet, Webex, Zoom) your class event.
  5. Download the recording to your device and save to your preferred platform (Google Drive, Kaltura).
  6. Return the Class Recording Kit to the IS Service Desk.
