Lecturecast April 2019

The Lecturecast Scheduler can be used to schedule Lecturecast recordings for modular, non-modular, special events occurring
in Lecturecast enabled spaces.

This training guide describes the steps for scheduling recordings for non-modular and special events and subsequently managing the
recordings for these events via Lecturecast ALP.

It involves:

  1. Scheduling a Lecturecast recording for a non-modular event
  2. Managing your event recordings

To create a schedule for a modular event, refer to the Create and Edit an Individual Schedule training guide.

The Lecturecast Scheduler can be used to schedule recordings for special events. However, if you need to record a special event, we advise you contact Digital Media at video@ucl.ac.uk in the first instance. This team will help you to identify the best method for recording your special event. If they cannot provide you with the facility to record then you can use the lecturecast scheduler.

 The Lecturecast Scheduler will look slightly different to the screenshots below as it now includes "Cancelled Events" and these have been taken using the admin interface.

  • Once captured, Lecturecast recordings will be available via the relevant Lecturecast section

Non-Modular events

  • Teaching events which do not have a module code.
  • Typically part of an undergraduate of postgraduate program but not associated with a module code e.g. revision lectures, shared or
    common introductory lecture taught across multiple courses
  • Once captured, Lecturecast recordings of non-modular events will be available in the Library of the person
    who scheduled the recording
  • Recordings can be published from this location into any Lecturecast section on which the person making the booking
    is an instructor

Special events

Special events are events that are NOT part of undergraduate or postgraduate taught programs, e.g. an inaugural lectures, conferences, outreach events, public events, CPD, etc. We recommend that if you have a requirement for a special event, you contact Digital Media at video@ucl.ac.uk. This team will help you to identify
the best method for recording your special event.
If you are unable to record your special event we can allow you to use the Lecturecast recording system to schedule/record the event, however support will not be provided if the recording fails. Unfortunately you cannot publish special the recording into a section in ALP at this platform is not suitable for special events and is only used to store teaching events.

For non-modular content to be made available for students to view, it needs to be published to a relevant class. Refer to the Publish content training guide for instructions.
