Publishing a Personal Capture (PCAP) recording is the process of both uploading the recording to the server and publishing it to a class for students to view. Once published, PCAP recordings are available immediately for students. You can change the availability of the recording through the class list page if necessary.
You must be logged into PCAP in order to publish a recording. You can click the Login link at the top of the recordings list, or you will be prompted to log in when you select to publish.
PCAP opens your default browser to lead you through the login process. These steps are provided in detail in the procedure below.
Transcoding and Publishing
May Take Some Time
Publishing time depends on the edits you made, the size of the recording, and network conditions. Once you click Publish, the process of transcoding and publishing the media happens in the background, though you will see a progress bar in the My Recordings page. Background publishing means that as long as the computer is running (not in "sleep" mode) and there is an active internet connection, these tasks will continue to run until they are complete, even if you close the application. In the event your internet connection is interrupted during the publishing process, the publishing task will start again when the connection is restored.
To publish a PCAP recording
The My Recordings list appears, first showing the status of Transcoding, with a progress bar, then Publishing with a progress bar. When publishing is complete, the recording is listed as Published. If published to a course, the capture is available to students immediately. You may need to change the availability of the capture on the Class list page. If published to your LIBRARY page, you can review the capture prior to publishing to one or more courses.
