Automatic Sync Technologies (AST  ) today announced a partnership with Tegrity  , the campus-wide lecture capture service and a division of McGraw Hill Higher Education. AST’s CaptionSync™ technology now supports Tegrity Campus, providing a fully-automated service for instructors that delivers time-coded, synchronized captions for lectures or supplementary course content recorded with Tegrity.

Compatible with Tegrity’s Search Anything™ technology, the captions are searchable by students across a single course, or all enrolled courses. As students review the captions, Tegrity enables them to create their own bookmarks, notes and annotations that are associated with the captioned content.
