Searching for that perfect study spot? Do you need a whiteboard, outlet for your laptop, printing, or enough space for you and your study partners? Access to food nearby? Is the library too quiet, the cafe too loud? SpaceScout™ was designed specifically for UW students, so you can quickly locate campus spaces that meet your needs right from your phone.

Tegrity Lecture Capture

Tegrity (uw.tegrity.com) is a video and screen capture tool that also supports importing video content from external sources. Take advantage of generous video storage capacity to create staff training videos, record lectures inside or outside the classroom, assign student video projects, and more.

If you teach an official for-credit UW course your courses will automatically show up in Tegrity, ready for lecture capture, with no action required on your part. If you want to use Tegrity for instructional support or administrative purposes use Tegrity Manager to create Tegrity Courses and control membership.

ViDA Virtual Desktop Access

ViDA gives students 24/7 remote access via a virtual desktop to high-end software normally available only in technology spaces on campus.
