New version of Tegrity

Updated features

Tegrity has recently upgraded to the new Tegrity Classroom version.  With this new upgrade, Tegrity has added powerful search and retrieval features, created access methods via Tegrity Enhanced Podcasting and simplified the posting of class content to course folders.  One of the most attractive features of Tegrity Classroom is the ease of upgrade and deployment.  Because it’s a web service, you just click a link to a URL to get to Tegrity and login. Tegrity automatically recognizes you, identifies your role and directs you to either the “record” or “play” functionality.  No more JAVA downloads.
