Lecturecast August 2018
This task is typically performed by Moodle Course Administrators and Tutors.
This task describes the steps required to unlink a Lecturecast section from a Moodle course.
1. Unlink the Lecturecast section
1.1 Turn Editing On
Click the 'Turn editing on' button from within the relevant Moodle course.
1.2 Access the Lecturecast section
Click the activity hyperlink to the Lecturecast section you wish to unlink.
1.3 Unlink the course
Click the 'UNLINK LMS COURSE' button.
1.4 Continue to unlink the course
Select 'OK' to continue to unlink the course.
1.5 A confirmation is displayed
Click the course link to return to the overview screen.
2. Delete the activity
2.1 Delete the activity from the Moodle course
Select the 'Edit' option for the activity.
It is good practice to remove the activity after the section has been unlinked from the Moodle course however, you can
reuse an activity to link to another Lecturecast section, if required. Unlinking and removing activities on Moodle does not
delete or change the content on the Lecturecast system.
2.2 Delete the activity
2.3 Confirm the deletion
Click 'Yes' to confirm the deletion.
The activity has been deleted
Recording indicator lights have been mounted on the podium desk of a number of Lecturecast enabled teaching spaces.
The lights indicate the status of the Lecturecast recording.
In addition to indicating the status of the recording, the lights can be used to pause and resume a recording during a lecture.
Many Lecturecast users need to edit their recordings to remove conversations had during breaks so having these lights may
remove the need to do this.
In this guide:
1. What do the colours indicate?
There is no scheduled recording taking place/Stand-By
The Lecturecast unit is idle and ready to begin recording
The Lecturecast unit is recording
The recording is paused
The Lecturecast unit is faulty/disconnected
2. Pause/resume a recording
2.1 Press down gently on the Delcom light for roughly one second to change the light from red to flashing yellow.
While the light is flashing yellow your lecture recording will be paused and nothing will be recorded.
2.2 Press down gently on the light again to resume recording. The light should change from flashing yellow to red, providing
the scheduled end time of the recording has not been reached.
3. Report a fault with your recording
If you have a scheduled recording and the Delcom light is flashing red, it indicates there is a technical fault with the system and
your session is not being recorded.
Please called the Service Desk on the handset on the Podium (extension x25000) and ask to speak to the Digital Education team.
