The “Classic Recorder”

The classic recorder is available on all of our podium computers on campus and is best used when recording from the dedicated PC in a classroom. You can access the Classic Recorder from the “TechSmith Relay” icon on the desktop of the computer, or by logging into your library (Link: montana.techsmithrelay.com) selecting the settings cog in the top right corner of your library and selecting “Launch Classic Recorder”
