SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In a recent survey of institutions using lecture capture from Tegrity, a division of McGraw-Hill Higher Education, an overwhelming majority of respondents indicated "ability to scale" was a top priority in ultimately choosing the cloud-based service. A testament to Tegrity's virtually unlimited ability to affordably scale as institutional use grows, ninety-five percent of universities surveyed indicated this flexibility was an important factor for adopting a particular course capture solution. Due to its simplicity and affordability in scaling up across an institution in the cloud, 72% expect adoption to grow 25% to 200% overall in the next 12 months.

Scalability Supported by Cloud and Integration Technology

Institutions are increasingly taking advantage of cloud-based technologies to ease the burden on their IT resources. In fact, 86% of Tegrity's survey respondents said they are more likely to consider adopting a cloud-based educational technology service due to the ability to scale affordably. Furthermore, simple LMS integration scored high for those surveyed. More than 70% said Tegrity's patented AAIRS(TM) integration technology, with its simple drag-and-drop interface and real-time connection to the LMS played a role in providing easy access to the technology on their campus with minimal effort from IT.

"Tegrity just had a record quarter, and our usage statistics show accelerated adoption taking place across our customer base. The fact that Tegrity has virtually unlimited scalability and is incredibly easy to use gives our customers confidence that they've selected the right solution for the growing number of students and instructors using Tegrity on their campuses," said Isaac Segal, president, Tegrity.

Tegrity unveiled its scalability survey results at the 2011 EDUCAUSE Annual Conference in Philadelphia. For more information, visit the Tegrity at booth # 1819.
