VIDEO-BASED eLEARNING COURSE in SacCT

Viewing Archived and Live Lectures in a SacCT Course

When students login to a video-based eLearning course in SacCT they may have two links available:

Video Streaming - Used to access a Web-based course schedule with links to the archived lectures. Links become active (available) at 12 p.m. the business day after the lecture was given.

Live Video Streaming - Students should click this icon 5 minutes before the start of their class to view a Live lecture.

These links are usually displayed on a SacCT course's content area called "Video Streaming" on the course's home page, as shown in the image below, but may also appear elsewhere in the course if the instructor has customized the course.

Live Lectures

To access a Live lecture, students must have special needs or live outside the cable viewing area and receive permission from their instructor. If they meet this criteria, the Live Video Streaming link will appear in the Video Streaming Content Area. When they click this link, RealPlayer opens to view the video streaming class.
