1. An introduction to the Lecturecast Scheduler
The Lecturecast Scheduler tool is typically used by Course Administrators and Tutors to schedule Lecturecast recordings
for a specific lecture or series of lectures.
Events will be available in the Lecturecast Scheduler when a room booking has been made and confirmed in CMIS in a
Lecturecast enabled teaching space. If you cannot see an event in the Lecturecast Scheduler please ensure the
room booking has been confirmed in CMIS.
When a CMIS room booking is cancelled the corresponding Lecturecast schedule is also cancelled. A notification is sent
to the event owner advising them of this.
Schedules for Lecturecast recordings can be created for individual or multiple events.
You can only delete a Lecturecast schedule which you created.
