Lecturecast November 2017

This task is typically performed by Moodle Course Administrators or Tutors at the beginning of academic sessions, but can be done at any time, as required.

This task is only required when multiple Lecturecast sections need to be added to a single Moodle course.


This task describes the steps required for adding additional Lecturecast sections to a Moodle course.

It involves:

1. Mapping a Moodle course to an additional section in Lecturecast
2. Adding a Lecturecast activity to the Moodle course and linking the content for the additional mapping

1. Map a Moodle course to an additional section in Lecturecast

1.1 Create an additional mapping via the Lecturecast Connector block

Click the 'Create additional mapping' hyperlink located within the Lecturecast Connector block.

1.2 Enter the module code on the Lecturecast Section Mapping page

Enter the Module code of the Lecturecast section you wish to map to.

Matching results are displayed after the third character is typed.

A message will be displayed if no matching section names are available. Check you have entered the Lecturecast section
name correctly and contact lecturecast@ucl.ac.uk if required.

1.3 Select the relevant Lecturecast section

Select the relevant Lecturecast section from the list. In this example, select 'ECON1001I'.

1.4 Create the mapping

Click the 'Create mapping' button to complete this part of the task.

2. Add a Lecturecast activity to the Moodle course and link the content for the new mapping

2.1 Add an activity

Click on the 'Add an activity or resource' hyperlink to add an activity to the Moodle course.

2.2 Select the Lecturecast activity

Items are listed alphabetically. Scroll through the list and select the Lecturecast activity.

2.3 Add the activity to the Moodle course

Click the 'Add' button.

2.4 Enter a meaningful name for the activity

Enter a meaningful 'Activity name'. The Activity name should be relevant to the Lecturecast section content it is linking to.

Choose a meaningful name so that it can be easily identified by students and other users.

You can change the Lecturecast display settings from this screen via Show more > Launch container. Refer to the
Change Lecturecast Display Settings training guide for more information.

2.5 Save the new activity and display the linking screen

Click the 'Save and display' button.

2.6 Link the content

Two mapped sections are displayed for this course. Ensure the newly mapped Lecturecast section is highlighted
and the 'Link to the Section Home' is also selected.

Then click the 'LINK CONTENT' button.

The additional link can now be used to access the relevant Lecturecast section

Students and other users with access to the specific Moodle course can now use the link created to access the additional
Lecturecast section.

Repeat the steps of this task to add further Lecturecast sections to the same Moodle course.
