What is LLC?
New for Fall 2020, ITS designed an installed Live Lecture Capture in most classrooms for teaching faculty to broadcast and record live classes. LLC is an integrated system combining the teaching podium, the A/V system, new classroom microphones, and document/whiteboard cameras, to help you live-stream and record teaching sessions via Zoom. Remote students can join these sessions live via Zoom and you can record and share the sessions with your classes for post-review.

LLC Tips and Tricks from Mines professors
Modified podium setup
Jürgen Brune, Mining Engineering
Students attending synchronously in-person and remote.
Presenting from the iPad is great because it permits me to do ad-hoc illustrations on-screen with Apple Pencil. I can occasionally slip in a blank slide to allow extra drawing space. I can preserve the illustrations with the PPT but generally choose not to. Students will, of course, have the illustrations available for review in the Zoom recording.
This setup works well in most situations. Only difficulty is sharing the audio from video playback. If I show videos with audio, i will need to switch presentation to the classroom PC and present from the podium, with room speakers on. I have experienced the occasional difficulties with the podium PC speakers – that requires some fiddling at times. But, most of my videos don’t require audio and I can narrate them myself.
