Legacy Lecturecast Fully Decommissioned

The Legacy Lecturecast system is now fully decommissioned. You can access all migrated content from legacy lecturecast on the Active Learning Platform (ALP). See below (Decommissioning of Legacy Lecturecast for further Info).

The Lecturecast system has a new interface:

From the morning of 23/1/19 a new interface will be implemented by Echo360 for the Lecturecast system. Everything you could access previously is still accessible. The new interface is quite intuitive but if you find yourself wondering where some aspect of Lecturecast functionality now sits, you will find these guides useful.

Note the Lecturecast scheduler interface is not affected by this update.



SURVEY: Lecturecast Recording Lights

As you are aware we are trialling recording lights in a number of teaching spaces.

We are inviting all presenters who have used Lecturecast in one of these teaching spaces to fill out this short survey and provide us with some feedback. It should only take a couple of minutes and your feedback is anonymous. Thank you.

The link to the survey is: https://opinio.ucl.ac.uk/s?s=57645

Recordings from the legacy Lecturecast system are now available within the current Lecturecast system and may be published into current Lecturecast sections.

Guidance on the re-use of recordings from previous academic years can be found here.

Please DO NOT DELETE legacy recordings from your personal library unless the content is no longer required, as this will be the only version of the content moving forward.

Migration of Legacy Lecturecast Content

Cloak
idMigration

The migration of content from the legacy Lecturecast system (pre-summer 2017) to the current Lecturecast system has now been completed. This means every recording from the legacy system (available, unavailable, archived) now has a copy within the current Lecturecast system.

Migrated legacy content may be published into current Lecturecast sections. Guidance on the re-use of recordings from previous academic years can be found here.

Important Note: Due to the nature of the migration process, content master files have been migrated to the personal library of one of the Instructors/Administrators on the original section, as well as the legacy section being created.

Please DO NOT DELETE legacy recordings from your personal library unless the content is no longer required, as this will be the only version of the content moving forward.

The Lecturecast service has a data retention period of 7 years in line with UCL data protection policy. After 7 years material will be auto-deleted unless it is republished to a new section, which will reset its retention period.

 Lecturecast Recording Lights

Cloak
idLights

The Lecturecast Project team are trialling lecture recording indicator lights in a number of centrally bookable rooms across campus (refer to the list below for details).

An indicator light has been mounted on the podium desk in these teaching spaces. The light will display different colours depending on whether a recording is taking place, is paused or whether there is a fault with the recording device.

In addition, you will be able to use the light to pause and resume a recording. This may be useful to remove conversations during lecture breaks.

  1. Christopher Ingold XLG1 LT
  2. 1-19 Torrington Place, room 113 (note: this is a cluster room)
  3. Roberts Building 106
  4. 14-16 Taviton Street, room 433
  5. Chandler House G10
  6. IOE - Bedford Way (20) - Elvin Hall room 104
  7. Medawar Building G02 Watson LT room G02

For more information about this trial visit the Digital Education blog.
