If you need to record a special event, contact Digital Media at email@example.com who provide filming and editing services.
While Lecturecast can be used to record any type of sheduled Modular or Non-Modular event. Lecturecast it is best suited to the capture of didatic lecture style presentations given from the front of class.
All our Lecturecast installations with a camera present are set-up for that camera to be directed to either the podium or the area at the front of the teaching space. The audio equipment in the room is also designed only to record sound from the the podium area or that of the speaker directly from lapel microphones. It is not designed to capture any audience participation, unless the teaching space as been designed to accomodate roving hand microphones.
Lecturecast has not been installed or designed to support discussion based activities and if you require such activities recorded to contact the Digital Education team for advice via firstname.lastname@example.org
Lecture recordings provide lecturers with the ability to review the structure and delivery of their lectures for professional development. Lecture recordings also provide lecturers with the ability to change the balance of activities during contact times, e.g. deliver informational elements via a recording and follow up with discussion sessions.
Lecture recordings provide students with the ability to revisit complex material, unusual or subject specific terminology (especially useful for overseas students) and view lectures missed due to illness or unforeseen circumstances.
