TechSmith Relay allows you to capture video on your phone and upload it to Relay for editing and submission to coursework at Athens State University. In order to use a phone to capture Relay videos, you need to have a Relay Account created and have your password setup so you can login to the system.
Relay Accounts are created in one of two ways:
- If you have ever watched a Relay Video through Blackboard, you automatically have an account created with your Athens State email account.
- If you have never watched a Relay Video through Blackboard, fill out this form to create an account.
Once your account is created, create a password and login for the first time using the Setting Up Your Relay Account (Students). Once you have successfully logged into the system the first time, use the below steps to create your first video on your mobile device:
Downloading the App and Connecting to TechSmith Relay:

Getting the QR Code to Scan:
