Lecture123 defines a community as a pool of user accounts
with access only to content within that community's repository.
The administrator of Lecture123 at your institution has worked
with the Lecture123 team to organize these communities.
If a Lecture123 community does not already exist for your use, then
complete the new community
and wait for someone from Lecture123 to respond that the community
is ready for use.
You may play with Lecture123 until then by using the free
Demo community (key is demo).
There is a Tools Menu on every Lecture123 web page
that provides simple, fast access to content and tools.
You may login by clicking on this menu.

Someone in your organization, e.g. your instructor or
administrator, will tell you the name and key of the community
where you should create your login account. Enter this information
along with other details and your password on this form. The community
is the secret phrase that grants you access to a community and is only
needed when you create your account or subscribe to a new community.
New users may benefit from taking a

is an excellent place to get answers to common questions.
Once you are logged in you will see a Tools Menu which
shows your current login and community. If your login is enrolled
in more than one community (e.g. if you are taking 2 classes), then you
may change your current community to access content in any of your
communities with your single login name.
If you have more than one login name, you may logout and login
back into the other account at any time. In general most users
have only one login account.
There are 2 login roles:
May playback content within their community(ies).
Sessions may be recorded with the Presenter only to the local disk,
i.e. students can not publish the recorded session to the Lecture123
Instructors have all the student features available. Additionally
instructors may publish content to the Lecture123 server repository and
may answer questions posted from students via the QA feature.
As the administrator of Lecture123 being used in your organization you
work with the Lecture123 team to define the number and names of the
communities you require, and the number of instructor and student users.
User members within a given community can only access content published in
that community. You have your choice on how to define your communities.
Here are some sample community arrangements:
- one community per course: students from all
sections would be restricted to content only in that course.
- one community per section per course: students
could only access content in their course section.
- one shared community for all courses: students
could view any lecture in any course.
- you may also decide to use a combination of community
Within a given community the instructor may create folders that contain
related content. You need to define the community/folder hierarchy that
works best in your environment.
Once the communities are defined by Lecture123 as per your input,
user accounts are created and self managed. As the administrator,
you will receive a community name and key from Lecture123 for each
community you requested. You will share this single key
with the instructor in each community. First, the instructor
uses this key to register for an instructor login account in their
community on a simple web form.
Currently instructors must register
before students and if there's more than one
instructor in a community, we must manually set that up for you.
In this case, please have all the instructors register for their
login accounts. Please send these login account names via email to
and ask us to enable these logins as instructors.
Once the instructor is registered, s/he will share this community key
with the students who then register for their accounts. Students
enrolled in more than one community
(e.g. if they are taking 2 classes and each class has a separate
community) only need to create one login account and then they can
register this account across multiple communities.
Users simply login by identifying their account ID and password,
and then they can select their active community.
